Doing OR for free: the UK OR Society’s Pro Bono OR service

May 3 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am

Join us for Doing OR for free: the UK OR Society’s Pro Bono OR service, where you can volunteer your skills to help organizations in need!

Presented by Eve Hardy, Pro Bono OR Manager, The OR Society and Ruth Kaufman, co-founder, Pro Bono OR and EURO Practitioners’ Forum chair

Pro Bono OR connects charitable organisations with skilled OR analysts who are willing to give their time for free. Our volunteers use a broad array of OR techniques and approaches to help UK-based NGOs identify their critical issues, explore different options, and explain their impact. We give executives the power to make more effective decisions and build more impactful organisations.

Come along and learn:

  1. how Pro Bono OR was established, and grew into the service it is today,
  2. what Pro Bono OR looks like for volunteers,
  3. how the Pro Bono OR journey unfolds for the charities we support.

We will start with a brief review of what sort of skills OR people offer to non-profit clients, and what sort of organisations we serve. We will use case studies and examples to demonstrate the difference we’ve made for NGOs and volunteers over our 11 year history.
