Session: Leveraging Data Locally: Utilizing data and data visualizations to empower community action work
Community Action staff's ability to collect, use and understand data may be the single most effective way to better and more quickly address ever shifting funding and operating environments. Harnessing the power of the information already collected--whether it is to report to funders and donors or to better tell our story to the public--is no longer just a "big data" capacity; it is an essential part of the adaptive capacity of successful nonprofit organizations and governmental entities. Agencies collect client data, in this session we will review examples of USING that data to improve service coordination, and tell the story of the agency.
