Is data maturity the key to meeting your mission?

For your nonprofit organization to effectively use data to meet its social impact mission, wouldn’t it be great to understand how you use data to deliver impact and where you could improve? 

This importance of understanding is the hypothesis behind data.org’s Data Maturity Assessment (DMA). Built for social impact organizations, the DMA is a self-assessment tool that provides respondents with a holistic snapshot of their organization’s data evolution and vetted resources from the community to help them reach the next stage of their data journey.
