Date & Time

Kyle Tribble Kelly Brown Jason Alexander

This session will explore how one Collective Impact site engaged demographic data to transform and strengthen their services and community partnerships. What began as an effort to examine a disparate experience of homelessness in their service area based on race, grew into a system-wide and ongoing process to assess the coalition and its partners' processes, systems and policies. This assessment uncovered systemic issues internal to the initiative that exacerbated these disparities. The findings and implications of the data were so extensive, the entire initiative refocused its strategy and programming to center equity.

Learning Objectives:

  1. How to establish the importance of demographic data
  2. How to integrate demographic data into the collective's systems and processes
  3. How to refine programs and policies to respond to insights surfaced from integrating and engaging demographic data
