Sharing Data Responsibly – A Conversation Guide for Funders

Human rights funders collect a lot of data about their grantees – as well as the people that their grantees help. Sharing this data openly can help funders be transparent about their activities and highlight the impact of their grantees’ work. However, it can also increase risks to human rights work if data isn’t collected and managed responsibly. How can funders be transparent about the work they support, while making sure that they aren’t harming grantees or others?

This guide is based on research conducted by Ariadne and The Engine Room.
