Fenris is excited to announce the launch of a new program on data leadership and governance, in partnership with Aspiration and Digital Public.
Call for Participation
As civil society moves to increasingly data-centric and data-driven modes of doing work and making change, we face new challenges in stewarding and governing the assets that underlie and power those efforts.
New types of leaders are emerging to meet these challenges, but few resources are available to inform governance, stewardship and long-term responsible leadership in data-centric missions and ventures.
Aspiration, Digital Public, and Fenris are announcing the Data Leadership Cohort (DLC), an opportunity for these leaders to meet, learn, and build networks with each other.
The first-ever Data Leadership Cohort will provide an opportunity for emerging data leaders to meet, learn, and build connections with each other as they work through challenges and opportunities in governing data resources, designing data-intensive platforms, and procuring data systems. This group will explore Data Leadership in the broader context of Data Governance, recognizing that our work exists in an ecosystem. The cohort will employ a co-learning framework refined over the last 15 years.
This is a small-group format for a practice-oriented peer learning group of 8-12 individuals. Over the course of 8 weeks, the group will prototype structures and processes for effective data governance by workshopping each other’s real-world cases.
We are recruiting an initial cohort now for launch in early 2022. If the first cohort is successful, and based on level of interest, we may consider additional cohorts. We will also provide other ways to engage and to share insights and learnings from the DLC.
