Data For Good: Conversation with Crisis Text Line

While data can be used for everything from gaining competitive business intelligence to enabling late-night food delivery, what if companies used their data for social good? What if they harnessed that power to help society’s most vulnerable individuals – like those dealing with bullying, depression, abuse or contemplating suicide? In this conversation, Dr. Shairi Turner, Chief Medical Officer of Crisis Text Line – a free, anonymous 24/7 text-based crisis intervention system that aims to mitigate crises by connecting people to counselors – will be joined by Periscope Data CEO Harry Glaser to discuss how data has empowered their work and saved countless lives. Together they’ll explore the ways companies can use data for social good, and how to empower today’s data teams to be moral leaders.
