360Giving Workshops

We run workshops to increase confidence, knowledge and skills using data.

Workshops

360Giving workshops are informal learning sessions which are designed to increase your confidence, knowledge and skills in using data and to grow your understanding of 360Giving’s tools and publishing process. 

Our online workshops are for non-experts. They are intended to be a safe learning environment for people of all abilities, whether you are totally new to data or want to brush up on your existing skills.

Introduction to the DEI Data Standard

Cost: Free

In 2020, 360Giving started work with the DEI Data Group to create the DEI Data Standard, a shared taxonomy and approach to support funders to understand the equity of their grantmaking. 

This workshop will introduce you to the DEI Data Standard, give background on why and how it was developed and outline the options for implementation. We’ll then explore how funders can approach collecting DEI Data Standard data about their grants and the next steps if they want to share the data collected using this framework using the 360Giving Data Standard. 

There will be time for questions throughout the workshop and a Q&A at the end, but for those with any further questions we will be staying on for a further 15 minutes after the session ends.

This session is designed for UK funders wanting to learn more about the DEI Data Standard and how they can start collecting equity data. 

6th March, 10:30am – 12:00pm
