How can we leverage community data to create positive social change?


Bob Prenovost will be pitching a discussion that asks,

There’s a plethora of data about pressing and persistent social issues in our community such as homelessness, mental illness, addictions etc. How can we leverage the collection and analysis of this data and use it to create positive social change ? Can organizations that are tasked with collecting this data find more effective and mutually beneficial ways to collaborate with the organizations and groups who are providing front line services and/or proposing innovative solutions to social issues ?
