What we do:
Change the Game supports and aims to build a strong, diverse progressive data community by:
  • Building and supporting a virtual community for data practitioners to share lessons learned, best practices, and questions;
  • Providing training academies to build out a larger community of practitioners; and
  • Developing online courses and interactive virtual trainings to support new practices and learning by community members and future practitioners.
