Gold isn’t valuable in its raw state. First, it needs to be processed and manipulated into jewelry. Similarly, data is valueless when collected in isolation. By sharing data, we unlock additional value and accelerate innovation. Data sharing is vital to promoting the health, education, and financial stability of every member of a community. It is essential because it can enhance decision-making capabilities, build learning organizations and finally, stimulate cultural change and innovation. Cross-sector data sharing enables communities to use individual and community-level information to understand acute community needs and lead to improved services, systems, and practices. Collaborative learning leads to developing innovative policies and interventions; and, ultimately, builds stronger communities. Increasingly, local and state 211s and United Ways are embracing data sharing as a core function of their modern community impact work as they convene or partner on collective impact initiatives seeking to drive equitable, person-centered impact. Join this session to learn more about resources and collaboratives United Way Worldwide is supporting and how your organization can access them.

Objectives:

  • Understand the key roles involved in data sharing collaboratives and where many 211s connect and bolster these initiatives
  • Create data sharing plans and policies with equity at the forefront of design
  • Know how to use dis-aggregated data, to better understand issues, advance narratives that focus on the systemic causes of current disparities, and to inform solutions
  • Be able to access resources and engage colleagues to support local development of data sharing collaboratives
