From Data to Action - How three communities use data to drive change #CKX

We often talk about data-driven decision-making. But sometimes in our quest to understand the data, we forget that behind every plot on the graph, bar on the chart, or statistic on the spreadsheet there’s a person or place, and a story to be told.

In an interactive “Phil Donahue” style conversation, this session will introduce you to three initiatives from across Canada that are truly turning data into knowledge to drive change in their communities:

  • From Calgary, we’ll learn how the Calgary Foundation is using Vital Signs and is developing a Community Knowledge Centre to tell the story of the issues affecting Calgarians and the organizations and community groups addressing them.
  • From Winnipeg, we’ll learn how Peg, a collaboration between United Way Winnipeg and the International Institute for Sustainable Development is measuring the health of the community year over year.
  • From Ottawa, we’ll learn how the Ottawa Neighbourhood Study is better defining Ottawa neighbourhoods while investigating the relationships between geography and community outcomes.
Bring your questions and perspectives. We look forward to an engaging conversation.

Important Participant Information:
  • This session is taking place in THE LAB, located on the 4th Floor of the TIFF Bell Lightbox. This floor is accessible by elevator only. Please take the elevator from the main, second or third floors up to the fourth floor.
