Welcome to Data Is For Everyone


Hi, I am Meena! And, this is an evolving virtual data science school - with offerings on data, research, and analytics. This space is designed to build a collection of CFRE-accredited courses and workshops that the community needs now. You can find a range of topics here - from data collection with the lens of equity and inclusion to analytics tools, practices, and processes. Together, you and I will build this school as we learn about the research and analytics priorities of our industry.


I have been working in the space of research and analytics for more than 10 years, and teaching research related subjects for the past 15 years. I have worked and taught in North America, parts of Asia and India. I find joy in enabling professionals from all backgrounds and cultures.


Interested in a data or analytics topic that is not covered here yet? Send me a message (www.namastedata.org), and I'll find a way to cover the topic.



Our success lies in sustainably built collective progress.




Here is a comprehensive “conversation-starter” course for our nonprofit friends who may wish to leverage analytics in their fundraising departments. This is a 35-min course intended to create space for dialogue around inclusive analytics. So, to enable good conversations, I proudly share that this course is now available on Udemy (link is available below).


Note that when people think about analytics, they generally consider a range of techniques. These run the gamut from spreadsheets and dashboards to more advanced techniques such as self-service data discovery and machine learning. For this course, I refer to the whole spectrum (i.e., from taking your research services to bringing concepts of predictability) as analytics.
