May 30: What’s the Deal With Data?

What is data, and why should you care? Data can be frustrating and tedious. Data has also not always been used in positive ways, especially for those of us from marginalized communities. The good news: data can be more than this! Data can help you bring together the voices and experiences of communities to celebrate your successes, demonstrate your impacts, elevate stories and advocate for social change. In this webinar we will discuss how to look at the service data you are collecting in a new way to find opportunities to better understand and share the stories of the work you are doing.

You probably went into this work to support community. The evolving needs of the people you serve is central to why you do the work–are they the center of your data? What information you ask your clients to share, how you ask, how you make decisions and advocate using your data–community should be the center of all of this. In this session, we provide best practices for being community-centered in your data collection practices, from intake to sharing stories back to the communities from which they came.
