Event description

Description

This community Forum will begin a conversation about the importance of evidence-based decision making for the social sector in the Ottawa area. Participants will explore some of the available robust data resources and support systems for measurable social impact and sustainable development. There will be opportunities to highlight the emerging knowledge, skills and resources that currently support social innovation and impactful processes, identify some strengths and challenges, and take the first steps collectively to develop a data strategy for the social sector in Ottawa.

Organizations in the non-profit and public sectors have been invited to register data champions to contribute their knowledge, skills, tools and the supports necessary for a robust and sustainable data ecosystem for the Ottawa area. Data Champion describes those who collect, consolidate, and/or consume data to improve outcomes on the emerging and longstanding education, health and social problems experienced by our most vulnerable populations.

There will be opportunities for discussion about

  • Data as a community asset

  • How data is being used as a catalyst and incentive for local action: managing programs and services, accessing resources, brokering partnerships, lobbying and social marketing targeted to specific change strategies, peer learning and knowledge transfer.

  • An efficient, coordinated and collaborative data ecosystem with the ability to address social and quality of life issues in Ottawa

A detailed agenda, pre-event questionnaire, and other supporting documents will be provided to registered participants in advance of the Forum.

There is no fee to participate. In order to maximise opportunities for discussion there are only a limited number of spaces available. Registration is open only to those who have been invited to participate. Please register no later than Friday November 3rd. If you need an invitation, please contact the organizer.
