How to Use Data to Your Advantage

A primer on helping you find, analyze, and present data effectively
with Mike Stolte, CIEL

Wednesday, April 20 12:00pm PDT - 1:00pm PDT (online)

“You can’t manage what you can’t measure” Peter Drucker, Management Expert

How healthy is your community? How do you measure it? Good data - combined with compelling stories - allow communities to access funding more easily, make decisions on where to put time and effort, and measure the impact of community and economic development initiatives over time. This webinar will use real-world stories to introduce you to key concepts in finding, analyzing and presenting data through the lens of community well-being.

Join speaker Mike Stolte and us for a thought-provoking online talk. 

Registration required. 

 

TRANSFORMATIVE STORIES

Several stories written from March through July of 2021 by our colleague Sxwpilemaát Siyám (Chief Leanne Joe, Squamish) have recently been posted to the Transformative Storytelling for Economic Reconciliation site.

Deeply personal and incredibly moving, in these stories Sxwpilemaát Siyám shares her insights into current policies, thoughts about her family's history and optimism for the future.

Her recent work, A BC Economic Reconciliation Framework for Municipalities, Institutions and Industry Partners, will be released soon and posted to that same site.
