Founding Organizations

Our Vision
"Changing the World
with Data"

Data-Pop Alliance is a non-profit “think-and-do-tank” created in 2013 by the Harvard Humanitarian Initiative, MIT Connection Science, and ODI that brings together researchers, practitioners, and activists who want to “Change the World with Data” through 3 pillars of work: diagnosing local realities and human problems with data and AI; mobilizing capacities, communities, and ideas towards more data literate societies; and, ultimately, transforming the systems and processes that underpin our societies and countries.

Pillars of Work


In the "data deluge" era, where data is abundant, knowledge continues to be scarce and unevenly distributed across regions of the globe. Leveraging the unique strengths of our founding institutions and network, we work to diagnose local realities using innovative data and technologies to create actionable insights.


Though trainings, policy and strategy workshops, conferences and events, we seek to enhance "data literacy", or rather, "literacy in the age of data" at scale to help individuals and institutions become agents of positive social change using data in ways that reflect core ethical principles of equity and empowerment.


We seek to build a world where data and technologies are used as levers to yield and implement better collective decisions for citizens, communities, and the planet. We help design and deploy data strategies, systems, and tools that support just, ethical, and sustainable human-centered transformations.
