Episode 34: TECH SERIES: All things databases

The number one question Sarah gets asked is about databases. How do you choose the right one? How do you make it really work for you? In this episode, Sarah talks us through databases and what we need to know about databases to help drive our movement forward.

Question to reflect on before you listen:
How do you organize your information about donors, participants, volunteers, etc. now?

Discussion questions:

  1. What resonated with you about this conversation? What would you like to take back to your organization?
  2. What criteria are most important to you as you select a database?
  3. Who is involved in making sure your data is accurate and complete? How can you engage your team to keep up your database?
  4. Our word of the week is “input.” What does that word mean to you as you think about how you manage data in your organization?
