This is an encore presentation of a conference favorite. In this webinar we will cover why we collect demographic data, tools for asking the questions, and how the information is used to improve your agency and your community.  A collaboration of an Oregon-based 211 and ADRC, you will hear from a Community Resource Specialist, a call center manager, and a data analyst about all things ‘demo’, and learn some tools to improve the process for you and your staff. You’ll hear some examples of ways to ask demographics that may be more comfortable for you and your caller. And we will also look at demographic requirements and changes coming from the census and REAL+D, using an equity lens expanding vocabulary around gender identity, race, military/veteran status, and more! 

After attending this webinar, participants will be able to:

Better understand why we ask demographics in I&R
Feel more confident asking demographic questions
Understand how demographic data is used after you collect it
