Promise Neighborhoods Webinar: Building & Sustaining Data Capacity When Resources are Scarce

Please join the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) from 3:30pm – 4:30pm (ET) on Thursday, December 18 for a webinar focusing on building and sustaining data capacity in your Promise Neighborhood. Participants will hear about some of the challenges facing Promise Neighborhood communities in the planning phase as they work to build data capacity, as well as examples of strategies for addressing them. The webinar will help both data and program staff who are planning or beginning to implement a Promise Neighborhood or similar community change effort in thinking about how the capacity to collect and use data can be built and sustained over time. Participants are strongly encouraged to join the conversation by asking their own questions and sharing their insights on the challenges presented.

Questions to be addressed include:

•   What are some of the biggest challenges in building and sustaining data capacity?
•   What role can partners play in sustaining data capacity over the longer term?
•   How might you prioritize your work given limited resources?
