Who am I?
Hello, I'm Meena Das
(Pronouns: she, her, hers)
Consultant | Speaker | Trainer | Research Volunteer
Hi there! I'm Meena. I'm a people-driven data equity consultant for nonprofits and social impact agencies. I have a decade+ of experience in the Tech and Nonprofit industry. I support nonprofits in raising money sustainably. I firmly believe that my empowering nonprofits across the world contributes to solidifying the commitment of those mission-driven organizations. I extend this mantra to empower small-shops across the world through pro-bono research volunteering as well.
When I am not consulting, I love to get to know my LinkedIn connections better over virtual coffees. I call myself a work in progress empath. As a supporter of the idea of extreme experimentation, I believe that we should not be afraid of experimenting because, just like a data analytics model, our perspective improves when we train ourselves with more data.
My recent aha moments outside client work include:
speaking at multiple seminars on integrating DEIA (Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility) in research tools and fundraising analytics.
providing pro-bono counseling as Research Advisor to small shops. Projects include conducting programmatic assessment surveys, donor segmentation planning, or one-off training on data analysis.
being volunteer advisor to 10+ amazing small-shops across North America
managing a weekly newsletter (data uncollected).
publishing my e-book, Some Data Posts - an en-book on data and lived experiences.
in addition to my data consulting, launching my online school: Data Is For Everyone!
mentoring 30+ immigrant women in technology and data science related careers.
launching my life-based podcast show "Being and Unbeing an Immigrant".
