Organizations, networks and communities have long sought to collect, integrate and share data so they can achieve the greatest possible individual and collective impact. But those things aren’t easy to do. In this webinar, BrightHive executives David Goodman and Natalie Evans Harris will discuss lessons learned in helping organizations to set up data trusts (David) and to establish governance models (Natalie) in order to enable sustainable, ethical data sharing. Participants will learn and discuss: 

  • How data trusts can provide the legal, technical and governance frameworks needed to share data across their networks.
  • How connected data resources can enable organizations to draw new insights.
  • How data governance frameworks can create sustainable, inclusive data sharing.
