GOOD and IBM have teamed up to bring you Figures of Progress, our new platform that explores the different ways that information has revolutionized our world. Through videos, story profiles, and infographics, we're sharing stories about the power of data and how today's leaders in business, city government and nonprofits are finding innovative ways to use it.

Whether a leader is uncovering the hidden secrets of basketball strategy like in the video above, trailblazing sustainability standards in design, or making life better with public services for 9 million New Yorkers, we know that data can help empower leaders to make lasting and life changing impact in communities around the world. Join us as we share their stories and look at how data has enabled them to create positive social, civic, and economic change.
