Episode 6: Can non-profits rebuild public trust with data?

The way we work is changing.

Why It Matters

Around the globe, only 57 percent of people say they trust NGOs. However, 78 percent of people say they trust technology. In an age where trust in technology beats trust in NGOs, what does it mean to rebuild trust? We sit down with Antonio Zappulla, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

“Any NGO that doesn’t put data at the centre of their operations will no longer be as relevant as they’ve been in the past,” says Antonio Zappulla, CEO of the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

The amount of data we produce every day is truly mind-boggling. With so much information at our fingertips, we’re adding to the data stockpile every time. What does all this mean for enhancing lives at the margins? What does it mean in an age where trust in technology is high but trust in civil society organizations is low?

In this new episode of Future of Good’s Edge & Main podcast, Antonio offers first-hand insights and provocative analysis into the significance of data for the next decade of social change, and why he believes that data is critical to boosting the public trust of social impact organizations.
