Workshop description

Mapping 101: Introduction to Spatial Analysis using ArcGIS Online

If you are new to GIS, this is the workshop for you. This five-hour workshop introduces participants to web-based mapping and spatial analysis using Esri’s ArcGIS Online. Through a combination of lectures and hands-on activities, participants will learn the fundamentals of designing and sharing online maps. Topics covered include preparing data for use, online data sources, map design, and spatial analysis.

Tour of East Side of Saint Paul’s Food Systems: The Intersection of Data, Food, and Community Wealth Building

This learning tour, sponsored in part by the McKnight Foundation, will highlight how data is being used to advance health, community wealth building, and food justice on the East Side of Saint Paul. Speakers at each location will highlight the East Side food systems, innovative partnerships, and their experience in collaboration building, co-op and urban farming, cooperative grocery, commercial kitchens, entrepreneurship, and workforce development.
Participants will be picked up at Graduate Minneapolis Hotel and will be shuttled by bus to each location. The Tour will include lunch in Saint Paul.

Communications for Changemakers

When digital campaigns can raise millions of dollars and influence policy in a matter of weeks, one thing is clear — the ways we communicate strongly influence the form and substance of community conversations. Get in the driver’s seat and make today’s communications tools work for you. In this session, you will learn the latest tips for effective, equity-driven communication while refreshing your knowledge of time-honored best practices. Create a plan tailored for your indicators project’s budget, goals and capacity. Focused content will include social media, scaling for a small budget, and applying an equity lens to help indicators drive positive change. This workshop is ideal for practitioners who primarily work in communications as well as leaders who would like to apply a communications lens across the breadth of a project. It is appropriate for all indicators projects, whether digital or paper-based.

Leveraging Data and Narrative To Advance Equity Locally

As America grows more diverse yet racial inequities in health, wealth, and opportunity remain wide and persistent, community action to advance equity – just and fair inclusion – is more critical than ever. Robust data that is disaggregated by race/ethnicity, income, neighborhood, and more plays a key role in supporting community groups, advocates, planners, policymakers, and others understand the state of equity in communities and inform policy solutions.
This workshop, designed for anyone interested in producing and using local data tools to advance equity, will introduce equity as a concept, discuss effective data-driven narratives to frame equity, share examples of local and national data tools designed to advance equity, and present a set of principles for designing data tools for health equity action developed by PolicyLink and EcoTrust.

Story Maps 101: Visual Storytelling with Maps

This two-hour workshop guides participants through the process of telling stories with maps using the Esri Story Map platform. A discussion about best practices in visual storytelling will precede a step-by-step tutorial on creating your own Esri Story Map.
