Friday, March 5, 2021

Justin Hollis Research Scientist, Wilder Research
You may be familiar with Minnesota Compass, a project that has been a longstanding member of the Community Indicators Consortium community. But are you familiar with their newly redesigned website? How about their special projects that track indicators of COVID-19 and its impacts, the STEM ecosystem in Minnesota, and leadership in the nonprofit, for profit, and government sectors? Join us for our coffee break with Justin Hollis on March 5 to receive a brief tour of the new website and to learn a bit about each of these special projects.
Justin specializes in policy research and program evaluation, data science and economic analysis and uses survey data, social indicators, demographic and geographic analysis for measuring progress, exposing inequities, and promoting informed civil discourse on issues of shared quality of life. Before joining Wilder Research, Justin worked as a senior policy analyst in county government preceded by stints as an economics instructor and research assistant in several university education, social, and health policy research institutes. He holds a master’s degree in economics from the University of New Mexico, and a bachelor’s degree in economics from the University of St. Thomas. Justin is also a regular contributor to the Minnesota Compass blog.
