09 Apr data2insight’s Contribution to Collective Impact

Founder, Veronica S. Smith, attended the 2018 Collective Impact Convening in Austin, Texas last week  participating in cross-sector dialog and peer learning to better solve complex problems around the world.  While at the conference, Veronica engaged with people from funding and backbone organizations, partners, and community members who are working on complex problems like training foster youth to be leaders in their communities, building healthier communities through access to healthier food, increasing college enrollment and completion for young people of color, and providing workforce development training and job placement for under-served job-seekers.
A highlight of the event was the discussion about the recent research study of 25 Collective Impact sites across the United States showing that Collective Impact contributions to population level changes.
