Tracey Gyateng

Data Science Manager,
DataKind UK

Tracey leads on working with social change organisations to use data (both numbers and words) to support decision making through the use of data science. This involves managing Office Hours for social change organisations to ask any data related questions; a peer learning group for data scientists that work in charities, supporting organisations to develop their data maturity and analyse their data through DataKind UK DataDives and Data Corp projects, and manages DataKind UK's strategic projects - with a current focus on data governance and ethics. Previously, she was data labs project manager at New Philanthropy Capital, helping charities to use government administrative datasets for programme evaluation and a quantitative research fellow at the Institute for Criminal Policy Research.

  • Exploring how data can support operational improvements, evaluate service provision and allow organisations to better understand their beneficiaries and supporters
  • Assessing the role of effective data collection and how charities can work to close gaps in the understanding of their organisation to improve decision making
  • Recognising the tension between data being a liability, as well as an asset, and how charities can use their data responsibly to advance their mission
