REL West Event: Four Pillars for Sustaining Rural Cross-Sector Data-Driven Decisionmaking

Event Date: 
May 14, 2020 - 03:00pm to 04:30pm EDT

Join REL West at WestEd for the fifth webinar in our Rural Data Use Webinar Series.

This 90-minute webinar will enhance the knowledge and skills of rural and rural-serving career pathway partnerships around data sharing and data use. Grounded in research and based on the experiences of three rural and rural-serving consortia, participants will gain practical knowledge, skills, and capacity for collecting, sharing, and using cross-sector data to sustain activities in their own regional career pathways. Presenters will discuss:

  • Frameworks that guide data-driven decisionmaking and related tools to guide cross-sector pathways teams as they develop and maintain data-use capacity;
  • Strategies and tools used in rural regional partnerships for sustaining cross-sector data infrastructure, technical expertise, and data-driven processes and culture; and
  • The developmental stages of cross-sector data work used to secure and sustain investment in rural cross-sector pathways.

There will also be an opportunity to learn about and discuss the impact of COVID-19 on regional data ecosystems and cross-sector collaboration.

Speakers include the following:

  • Mara Lokowandt, REL West
  • Alice Rice, REL West
  • Mary Rauner, REL Wes
