The 2020 Impact Summit will showcase how data and community indicators are or can be used to foster opportunity and catalyze change within communities.
We collect, analyze, and report community-level data with the hope that it will be used to catalyze change…to inform decision-making, allocate resources, and focus efforts to improve outcomes. How effective are our efforts? We will examine the effective use of community indicators for making measurable and sustainable improvements in quality of community life: how we engage and empower; how we understand and address biases; whether we carefully consider the methods and processes we use; how effective our reporting is; and, whether we use data to help us understand not only what is, but also what is coming. Find out all the new approaches, lessons learned and success stories on the path from data to empowerment at the 2020 Impact Summit.
If you believe in using data to improve outcomes, you are bound to find something of interest at the 2020 Impact Summit. This is true whether you are a practitioner or a researcher; whether you are a data analyst, planner, communications specialist, community organizer, manager, philanthropist, epidemiologist; whether you work for a community-based organization, a local government, a foundation, academia, or the media.
Under the overarching theme of using data as a catalyst for community change, we offer the following tracks:
Health & Well-being
Community Planning & Development
Children & Families
Place-based Funders and Initiatives
Innovative Data Tools
Organization Development & Community Indicators-Performance Measures Integration
