Fi­delity helps non­prof­its solve tech chal­lenges

The Dallas Morning News - - North Texas -

More than 100 tech­nol­o­gists from Fi­delity In­vest­ments in West­lake re­cently part­nered with 15 Dal­las-fort Worth area non­prof­its to help solve their tech­nol­ogy chal­lenges within five hours. The ser­vice was val­ued at $126,000.

One project helped The Budd Cen­ter at South­ern Methodist Univer­sity’s School of Ed­u­ca­tion & Hu­man Devel­op­ment to choose the best data-vi­su­al­iza­tion tools to re­place its man­ual process of comb­ing through data to bridge schools’ and non­prof­its’ ser­vices for strug­gling Dal­las stu­dents. This will al­low The Budd Cen­ter, schools and non­prof­its to help close stu­dent achieve­ment gaps.
