EARL 2021 charity donation

Blogs home

After another fantastic EARL Conference held online this September, we are delighted to share that we were able to donate £8,000 to DataKind UK.

The aim of the Enterprise Applications of the R Langauge Conference is to inform, educate and inspire, and we certainly feel inspired by the great work DataKind UK have done this year and plan for the next.

Suzy from the DataKind UK team kindly sent us the statement below to share with the community:

At DataKind UK, we are looking ahead to ensure that we continue to provide what the sector needs to make full use of responsible data science. This year, we have heard the ideas, requests, and feedback of charities, our volunteer community, our staff team, our partners, and others in the sector, and distilled these insights into a new five year strategy. This generous donation from The EARL Conference will support us in our work to engage nonprofit leaders with data, to help our social sector data communities to flourish and grow, and to provide that crucial data support to social sector organisations through our DataDive, DataCorps projects as well as our soon-to-be launched mentoring programme.

Thank you Suzy! We look forward to reading about DataKind’s work over the next year.

We’re excited to tell you that the EARL Conference will be back in-person from the 6-8th September 2022 at the Tower Hotel, London. The call for abstracts will open in January – stay up-to-date and sign up to the mailing list here.
