The writer Frederick Buechner observed a person’s calling is found “where your deep gladness and the world's deep hunger meet.” Participation in the growing Data for Good movement provides opportunities to use our technical skills to support the organizations, projects and causes we care about the most. As the movement continues to grow, we can envision a day when pro bono activity is considered to be more than an added benefit, becoming a normal, ordinary part of a career in data science, statistics and analytics. Participation is encouraged from everyone from students through the most experienced and entry-level analytic workers through top executives. Finding your place of deep gladness and sharing your skills for the greater good can be a part of everyone's career journey.
