More than ever, in these times of distrust of science and of institutions, we need to convene, unite, and ultimately ignite an interest in knowledge and a desire for change. Community indicators can do that and to guide this endeavor we need practitioners who understand all the facets of this effort and can effectively sustain the work. This workshop will equip you with information and empower you to drive change and lead your communities toward a positive future.
We will look at the nuts and bolts behind the process of developing a community indicators project: overall organization, criteria for indicator selection, sourcing, analyzing, and interpreting data, theory and practice behind successful reporting, how to move from data to action.
Attendees will receive their own copy of CIC’s Community Indicators Project Development Guide.
