211 Ontario’s newest director to focus on bringing databases and staff together

Having spent a decade working at the intersection of technology and the non-profit sector, Baijul Parikh is the first person appointed to 211 Ontario’s new Director of Data and Digital Strategy role.

Why It Matters

While many organizations might now be collecting data and understanding the importance of evidence-based advocacy, they might still not have the internal capacity to analyze and strategize using that data.

Baijul Parikh started as the organization’s Director of Data and Digital Strategy in October and is the first person to fill this new role. As the only other staff director alongside Karen Milligan, the executive director, Parikh has a broad remit: she’ll be tasked with leading internal technology transformations, developing the organization’s data and digital strategies, and ensuring that staff can take on these new ways of working.
