Are you at a nonprofit that's overwhelmed by technology? Do you feel like
the unimaginable pile of tech you're working with isn't quite paying off
with less work? Is it frustrating that even with extensive data management
tools at your disposal, you're not able to efficiently manage or create
reports from your data?

Join Socializing for Justice for a ProfDev (professional development)
training on Data Lifecycle Management on Monday, February 3, 6:00 - 8:30 PM.

Fee: $10 advance/$20 door (cash only)
Limited space - register ahead of time: www.sojust.org
Credit cards accepted online. Cash only at the door (if space available).
Newcomers always welcomed!

Data Lifecycle Management
More and more nonprofits are moving towards more sophisticated data
gathering. But for all the rewards of this trend, they run a risk of
unintentionally increasing their workload by adding new tools and new
reporting demands that are out of alignment. This is especially true for
small and mid-sized nonprofits who lack a central IT and data management
staff to help them design and implement these tools. This training draws on
nearly two decades of experience helping real, busy people deal with large,
complex data systems. You'll learn some new ways of thinking about data
lifecycle that can have real impact on your daily workload and empower you
to get what you need out of technology consultants.

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).

SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly ProfDev
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which provides access to
affordable professional development to increase our individual capacity for
movement building.

With 2400 members and 7+ years of creating a diverse cross-issue community
in Boston (165+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best place to find
the great people, organizations and community you're looking for while
putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
