GDI Volunteers

Our 120+ network of volunteers come from a broad set of organisations including consulting firms, technology companies and start-ups.

We're focused on building a diverse, equitable and inclusive community for these volunteers via L&D and social events such that we can accelerate the 'data for social good' movement and act as a conduit of skilled talent from the for-profit world into the social sector.

GDI Volunteers work under the guidance of a GDI Fellow (Project Leader) on discrete pro-bono D&A projects for our charity partners, typically spending a couple of hours per week.  

We are super proud of the talent we have in our network!
