Dear Colleagues and Friends,
Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) is pleased to invite nonprofit professionals to a Roundtable session about how nonprofits can build an effect data culture. Our featured guest will be Ashley Winning, vice president of research and evaluation at Economic Mobility Pathways (EMPath).
Here is what Ashley says about this session:
Is your organization grappling with how to build a strong and positive data culture? Do staff ever struggle to see the importance of data? Does data collection sometimes feel meaningless, cumbersome, confusing, or boring?
In this highly interactive roundtable discussion, we will share and learn about strategies to:
- Understand your organization’s existing data culture, and break down barriers to building a stronger data culture
- Integrate data into organizational practice, and encourage staff at all levels to use data to inform decisions
- Move from numbers to stories, and make data meaningful and even fun!
Here’s a little more about Ashley:
As Vice President of Research and Evaluation at EMPath (Economic Mobility Pathways), Ashley Winning is responsible for program development and evaluation, research design and implementation, and strengthening EMPath’s data culture. She joined EMPath in 2016, after a decade conducting both qualitative and quantitative research in social and behavioral sciences. Her post-doctoral and doctoral research focused on social determinants of health, including links between early adversity, psychological distress, and health across the life course. Ashley holds a ScD in Social Epidemiology from the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, and an MPH in Behavioral Sciences and Health Education from Emory University.
1) In keeping with the spirit of the TNB Roundtable series, this session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. This will be a professional development opportunity for nonprofit professionals who want to learn with and from their peers in other organizations.
2) This session is for employees of nonprofit organizations. It is not designed to meet the needs of vendors, volunteers, students, consultants, job-seekers, and others.
3) Priority in registration will be given to those who are employed by nonprofit organizations that hold full membership in the Massachusetts Nonprofit Network.
4) Participation in this session is free of charge for nonprofit professionals. However, you must have a confirmed registration in order to attend.
5) If this session is booked to capacity by the time you seek to register for it, please go ahead and put yourself on the waiting list. We have a good track record of finding seats for nonprofit professionals on the waiting list.
We hope that you can join us for a vigorous and informative conversation, in which you will be welcome to share your knowledge and experience with your peers!
