We're Data To The People
We're passionate global pioneers in data literacy.
Founded in 2017 to assess and develop lifelong data literacy across the globe, Data to the People began by developing Databilities®, the world’s first evidence-based data literacy competency framework.
Founder Jane Crofts recognised the need for a rigorous global benchmark to support all organisations and people to face a data-driven future and based her groundbreaking Databilities® work on thorough academic research from Canada’s Dalhousie University.
Early milestones include the Databilities® launch at the United Nations World Data Forum in October 2018, the launch of the Data Literacy Project (on the board of which sits founder Jane Crofts), and in 2019 the commencement of pilots with significant public and private sector partners. In 2017 founder Jane Crofts launched the Data Literacy Manifesto, boldly articulating a vision for data literacy as the ‘universal language of the fourth industrial revolution’.
