Dear Liberation Tech Colleagues,

Bunker Hill Community College (BHCC) and Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) are
pleased to invite you to  a panel discussion about the future of nonprofit
data analysis as a profession in Massachusetts.  As demand grows for
nonprofit data analysts, we hope that institutions of higher education,
nonprofit technology assistance providers, and nonprofit organizations can
work together to create career ladders for those who want to meet this need.

These are our goals for the July 20th discussion:

1) Showcase BHCC's current certificate and associate's degree programs in
data services and database programming.

2)  Showcase TNBL's plans to expand its workforce development initiative to
offer on the job training and entry level job placement in nonprofit data

3) Advance a serious conversation with nonprofit professionals about what
kinds of coursework and on the job training will lead to successful careers
for data analysts that want to serve nonprofits in Massachusetts.

4) Brainstorm about the long term role of data management and data analysis
in the nonprofit sector.

The panel discussion will be led by Michael Harris (BHCC faculty member,
and creator of the Data Management Certificate program) and Jefferson
Fernandes (BHCC Computer Information Technology faculty chair).

This session is ideal for grant makers, workforce development experts,
college and university faculty, and decision-makers at nonprofit
