Data. Good Data. It is perhaps the single most important factor in exposing new information and highlighting upcoming trends affecting our communities and the effectiveness of our work.
Understanding and implementing “purposeful” data collection efforts can improve program design and evaluation and, ultimately ensure our work and resources have the greatest impact. Yet, family asset building programs are continuously challenged to utilize program data, access public data, and adapt collection strategies to present information in the most compelling fashion to the variety of constituents they work with and for.
The BPP is pleased to bring its highly regarded 2012 FAB Workshop Series to Tucson, Arizona on August 1, 2012. This free, day-long workshop will feature presentations from top family asset building and technology experts.
We will hear from Laura Penny, the WFSA Director for the Women’s Foundation of So. Arizona, on the findings and methodology of their recently released “The Self-Sufficiency Standard for Arizona 2012 Report”. We will explore how these findings compare and contrast to the parameters of self-sufficiency in the Mexican context. Liz Thomey from the Pio Decimo Center Catholic Community Services will walk us through a case study of how data mining efforts can enhance the inter-organizational relationship and program outcomes.
The workshop will also explore:
- the state of current available data to inform our work
- the art and science of crafting the best questions and surveys
- tools and applications for presenting our data in a way the mobilizes greater understanding and ultimately action
This session is designed to be of particular benefit to:
- executive directors, program directors and managers responsible for the design and evaluation of asset building services
- development directors and managers, fundraisers and grantwriters responsible for mobilizing resources for asset building services
This session is free to attend but space is limited.
