Networking for grantmakers

Do you work in a grantmaking organisation, and want to use data to meet, connect with, and learn from others in the same boat? 360Giving supports a wide variety of funders to publish their grants data, and to use data to make more informed and effective decisions. They invite funders to share knowledge and lessons learned on common, data-related challenges. Attendees will leave the session better connected to individuals from other funding organisations, and with ideas to enhance how they work with data.
