Pre-conference Workshop: The Use of Goevisualization Techniques via Scenario Planning for More Resilient Communities
This workshop under the aegis of Resiliency will provide communities with ideas and methods to help think about and plan for their own communities The first half of the workshop will look at how to use geovisualization techniques can graphically show and display the impacts of shocks to the system. The second half of the workshop will show how to take that data and create a scenario planning matrix of different scenarios that a community could use. We will highlight that the strength of scenario planning and the scenario planning matrix is not only ideal for understanding what different scenarios will result in but is also ideal for creating dialogue between community members.

Pre-Conference Workshop: Community Data for Equity Action
As America grows more diverse yet racial inequities in health, wealth, and opportunity remain wide and persistent, community action to advance equity – just and fair inclusion – is more critical than ever. Robust data that is disaggregated by race/ethnicity, income, neighborhood, and more plays a key role in supporting community groups, advocates, planners, policymakers, and others understand the state of equity in communities and inform policy solutions. This workshop, designed for anyone interested in producing and using local data tools to advance equity, will introduce equity as a concept, share examples of local and national data tools designed to advance equity, and present a set of principles for designing data tools for health equity action developed by PolicyLink and EcoTrust.

a) Using Data for Social Impact: How A Cross-Sector Commitment to Degree Attainment Is Transforming Florida Communities b) RI Talent Dashboard: Connecting Rhode Islanders to Interactive, Cross-sector Data
a) Using Data for Social Impact: How A Cross-Sector Commitment to Degree Attainment Is Transforming Florida Communities (Kimberly Lent, Kimberly Krupa, PhD) The percentage of adults with a high-quality postsecondary degree or credential is one of the most powerful indicators of economic development and healthy communities. Through an overview of FCAN and Achieve Escambia’s research and policy analysis, data dashboards, and cross-sector convenings, attendees will see how Florida’s commitment to community indicators is driving conversation about inequities and sparking action.

b) RI Talent Dashboard: Connecting Rhode Islanders to Interactive, Cross-sector Data (Ariel Neumann, Amelia Roberts) As demand for data access and democratization has increased, the need for a more robust and accessible solution has emerged. In late 2018, the RI Governor’s Workforce Board (GWB) spearheaded a cross-agency initiative to make data more accessible to the public as well as provide more capacity to state agencies. GWB, the RI Department of Education, the RI Department of Labor and Training, the RI Office of the Postsecondary Commissioner and DataSpark collaborated to create the RI Talent Dashboard, a website dedicated to providing accurate and up-to-date data across 15+ indicators. From this presentation, participants will learn what the RI Talent Dashboard is, how it was built, challenges we encountered, and what you may need to consider if you want to build a similar site.

a) Developing a Snapshot of Community Participation b) Reaching Across Sectors, Geographies and Demographics to Build a Foundation for Improved Quality of Life c) Leaving no Canadian Behind: Data to Identify Vulnerable Groups of Canadians and
a) Developing a Snapshot of Community Participation  (Trina Prior, Jenny Lee-Leugner)  Are we missing the bigger picture with the way we look at levels of community participation? What role does social media play in enabling people to participate in community life? Which generations are most active and in what ways? What prevents or limits people’s participation? These are some of the questions Vancouver Foundation sought to answer with its 2019 Vital Signs report. This presentation will outline: the Foundation’s motivation for moving from a broad community indicator report to one focused on the theme of community participation; how findings were paired to tell a story; and the opportunities that have been identified to share and build on the findings.
With a report release date of October 3rd, CIC conference attendees will be among the first to hear about this research.

b) Reaching Across Sectors, Geographies and Demographics to Build a Foundation for Improved Quality of Life (Nancy Watson) Learn how Engage Nova Scotia, a small not-for-profit, is combining just-in-time design with long-range visioning to leverage original, province-wide research and drive community-based systems change by catalyzing ground-up, cross-sectoral regional teams

c) Leaving no Canadian Behind: Data to Identify Vulnerable Groups of Canadians and Measure their Wellbeing in the Context of SDG Implementation (Stefan Jungcurt) One of the fundamental principles of the 2030 Agenda and the Sustainable Development Goals is to leave no one behind, meaning that all SDGs and their targets must be achieved for all people everywhere. The Agenda further states that implementation must start put those most behind first, to ensure that people suffering from extreme poverty and marginalization will be prioritized. With the support of the Canadian government, the International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD) investigated which groups of Canadians are most at risk of being left behind and what data sources are available to monitor their well being. We find that, despite Canada’s overall high standard of living, many Canadians are currently being left behind and that many of the affected groups are insufficiently represented in official statistics. Vulnerable groups must also be enabled to participate in the definition of indicator frameworks, data collection and analysis, and be empowered to use data to tell their stories of deprivation.

a) The Bay Area Equity Atlas: Data for Regional Action on Equity (Sarah Treuhaft)
From informing the public debate to driving policy solutions, data broken down by race and geography is a key ingredient in advancing equity in communities. Yet grassroots community groups and organizers often lack access to the data they need to power their efforts. To address this gap, the San Francisco Foundation partnered with the National Equity Atlas team at PolicyLink and the USC Program for Environmental and Regional Equity to build the Bay Area Equity Atlas, a comprehensive data resource that equips community leaders with 21 powerful equity metrics and policy solutions for inclusive prosperity. During this presentation, you will learn about this new tool and how community leaders throughout the region are using it to advance equity campaigns.

b) RACE COUNTS: Tracking Racial Disparities in California (Chris Ringewald, Tolu Bamishigbin) Participants will hear about how a partnership of community organizers, social justice advocates, and university researchers developed the most comprehensive community indicators initiative focused on race in California.

c) Measuring the Dream for an Equitable and Sustainable Future (Katie Oconnell, Nisha Botchwey) More than 50 years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s assassination, what has become of his call for social, political, and economic equality for African Americans? The Measuring the Dream (MTD) project anticipates where and how communities, decision-makers, and institutions can engage to build an equitable future. The project aims to educate leaders to fully understand the nexus between the legacy of racism and the continuation of gaps in wealth, education and quality of life between White and Black Americans. This session will focus on how a broader national context. can help community indicator projects think about local equity measures

Getting Ready for the 2020 Census
The 2020 Census is just around the corner and it is important to note the importance of this data collection activity and some of the major issues surrounding the Census. The decennial census is one of the few places where systematic and comparable neighborhood level data are provided for every community in the nation. Census data support our democratic system of government, they are used to distribute over $800 billion each year to states and localities, and Census data are used extensively in community planning. In this session, the audience will learn about a couple of tools that can be used to help achieve a more accurate Census count. The audience will also learn about two mapping applications that can be used to gain a better understanding of where hard-to-count Census tracts are located and who lives in those tracts.

These Integrated Public Data Systems Will Get Us Better Measures of Well-Being! Or Maybe Not.
Local and state governments are rapidly building ways to connect data from across their broad enterprises: records from Medicaid, social services, the schools, courts, and much more. By the Annie E. Casey’s Foundation’s estimate, nearly half the US population already lives in a jurisdiction operating one of these data trusts, with the potential to create much richer public indicators of the health and wealth of our communities. What might those indicators look like? And how can we advocate for them?

This panel will highlight examples of where linked data *has* helped to create new indicators – and discuss the different (dis)incentives for transparency and public indicator work within these public data trusts that may require advocacy from CIC members to overcome.

a) Partnering with Everyday Democracy to Create Connection b) Ramsey County and Saint Paul’s Joint Complete Count Committee
a) Partnering with Everyday Democracy to Create Connection (Jennifer Anderson-Ochoa, Susan Brutshcy)  Santa Cruz County is utilizing information collected via the Community Assessment Project and other initiatives to have data-informed conversations about race and equity. In this presentation we will explore how individual, community, program and population level data is opening space for residents in Santa Cruz County to connect, build trust, and problem-solve together with an equity lens.
 b) Ramsey County and Saint Paul’s Joint Complete Count Committee (Jolie Wood, Toni Newborn) This presentation will provide a case study of how the most diverse, urban county in Minnesota has been working with the community, municipalities, neighboring counties, and the state to prepare for a census that may be the most challenging in recent history. Early in 2018, Ramsey County and the City of Saint Paul began working together to form a joint Complete Count Committee (CCC). We held our first CCC meeting with 25 members of the community and local municipalities in October 2018. At the second meeting in January, 45 people gathered and formed seven subcommittees: Renters, People of Color, Immigrants and Refugees, Education, Business, Seniors, and Homeless. Each subcommittee created an action plan for the next 16 months. Since then, subcommittees have met monthly, worked their networks, recruited new members, and begun outreach. This presentation will discuss the challenges as well as opportunities, in terms of resources, recruitment of diverse voices, equity in representation, and messaging that is inclusive and responsive. We are creating relationships among stakeholders who are dedicated to building greater trust in the census, broader awareness of how it affects all of us, and higher motivation to participate. We hope to nurture and build upon these relationships beyond April 2020, as we deepen all our community engagement efforts.

a) The Power of Local Data in Communicating Health Disparities: Lessons from the City Health Dashboard (Becky Ofrane)  City leaders and policymakers need reliable, local data to craft policies and programs, but challenges exist in making relevant data available to them. The City Health Dashboard is an online resource with over 35 measures of health and its drivers for the 500 largest US cities. The data dashboard strikes a balance between accessibility and rigor, demonstrating the power of local data in communicating health disparities to multiple audiences.

b) Tracking-Progress Across Canada: Using the Tracking-Progress Platform to Digitize Vital Signs Report  (Kyle Wiebe)   The International Institute for Sustainable Development (IISD)’s customizable Tracking-Progress platform transforms data into accessible and interactive displays (maps, graphs and charts) for leaders and community members to track issues that matter locally. By bringing the CFC’s Vital Signs reporting online to the tracking-progress platform, the IISD and CFC intend to improve the effective communication of data to residents, community organizations, universities and colleges, government leaders and community foundations so they can take action and direct resources where they will have the greatest impact. This session will share experiences on the technical development of the tool, how consensus building was integrated into the design of the platform s and how the IISD is using training to improve the capacity of community foundations to build internal organizational resilience and promote the sustainability of community indicators systems.

Right scaling data for equity: a) Data disaggregation to provide information for Minnesota’s diverse cultural communities b) Identifying inequalities in access to early care and education services
a) Data disaggregation to provide information for Minnesota’s diverse cultural communities (Allison Liuzzi, Jacob Wascalus) Minnesota is home to rich and diverse cultural communities. In 2019, Minnesota Compass (www.mncompass.org) launched new cultural community at-a-glance profiles. Relying on data from the Integrated Public Use Microdata Series (IPUMS USA), the profiles provide demographic information and quality-of-life outcomes for 12 of the largest cultural communities in Minnesota. This presentation will focus on methodologies used to identify cultural communities, strengths and limitations of information provided by the profiles, and plans for further development and refinement.
b) The King County Health Disparities Dashboard: Data for Measuring Health Equity (Mariko Toyoji, Sara Jaye Sanford) - Racial/ethnic health disparities are higher rates of serious health conditions or deaths that affect communities of color. These disparities can result in shorter lifespans and lower quality of life, are rooted in inequities in the opportunities and resources needed for good health, such as education, employment, safe and healthy neighborhoods, and access to health care. These inequities are often the result of current and historical institutionalized racism or explicit racial bias. The King County Health Disparities Dashboard documents how much specific disparities affect communities of color in King County. Using relative rate ratios, the dashboard shows social determinants of health and health outcomes data for American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian, Black/African American, Hispanic, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander residents in King County, compared to whites or the King County average. We hope that this information rich dashboard will be used as a tool to identify health disparities and inform local health equity work.

Fast-paced presentations on a variety of subjects related to community indicators -- the common element being the ability to communicate a complex issue into a series of quickly-advancing slides.  

  1. Building Community with Participation of Multi-Stakeholders  by Utilizing Community Indicators -Mutual Learning between US and Japan (Masako Hasegawa)

  2. Designing Knowledge Management for the greater good (Edwin K. Morris)
  • Join and discover how knowledge handling can be a "de-politicizing" capacity in elected government structures; strengthening KM as a pillar of democracy. Impacts to operations, decision making, and succession planning may not be understood by the citizens very well. Municipalities in the US are reliant on politicized systems. The knowledge inefficiencies they experience are like any other industry but can be more complicated by political party affiliations. I introduce Knowledge Management as a cool visual story. Ask yourself this question; Would you consider your next move to a town that has a high KM rating versus a town that does not?  We  are empowering municipal KM structures  using the ISO 30401:2018 KM Systems.

       3. Is Minnesota Doing Enough to Prepare Every Student for a Bright Future? (Peg Thomas)

       4.Pop Forward! Re-imagining commercial corridor redevelopment (Christyn Freemon)

a) USALEEP: Reflections on collaboration and innovation to assess life expectancy at the community level b) Identifying inequalities in access to early care and education services
a) USALEEP: Reflections on collaboration and innovation to assess life expectancy at the community level (Kirk Bol)  - From the question “can we come up with a single measure of health to explore community-level health across the country?” to the launch of estimates of life expectancy at the census tract level, the US Small Area Life Expectancy Estimates Project (USALEEP) is a success born of collaboration and innovation. This presentation will reflect on this success, jurisdictional and other uses of the USALEEP estimates, and the opportunities for ongoing promotion and use of this important tool.

b) Identifying inequalities in access to early care and education services (Javzandulam Azuma, Sarah Yuan, Yvette Stern) Measuring children’s accessibility to early care and education (ECE) services has become increasingly important, and it underscore the need for strategic investments in an early childhood system. There are many factors that influence whether a family can access the care they need or want. However, the most significant factors affecting access to ECE services are relationship between supply and demand of services, affordability of enrolling children into programs, and distance to programs from home. This presentation aims to introduce two measures on accessibility to ECE based on a GIS-based floating catchment area method and publicly available data. Using these indicators, we identified inequalities and gaps in access to ECE services at the community and subcounty level. Accessibility refers to both of spatial accessibility and affordability. Spatial accessibility measures the extent to which an ECE provider has the supply to meet the demand within a certain catchment area, and affordability is determined by how much of total family income is spent per child on ECE services within the catchment area. These measures offer an effective way for ECE advocates to identify communities with poor spatial accessibility and affordability, and prioritize needs across communities that require expansions of supply and other mechanisms such as subsidies and scholarships to improve access to high quality ECE for all children.

Plenary Panel: Getting Good Data into the Public Sphere/Ensuring public's access to information
Community indicators projects and the media have enjoyed a long partnership.  Journalists use data produced by community indicators projects as background information and community indicators rely on newspapers, TV and radio to share important findings from their research into community data.  With the faltering of local media, the erosion of trust in public institutions, and ready access to real and fake data at everyone's fingertips, data producers are looking for new kinds of partnerships and new models to get good data into the public sphere. This panel will explore how the media is adapting, new approaches data professionals are developing to increase their visibility, and the role of philanthropy as we move to new models.

a) Rising from the rubble: Re-imagining a more equitable news and information ecosystem in Boulder County, CO b) Data accessibility as a pathway to genuine equality for Atlanta’s westside communities
a) Rising from the rubble: Re-imagining a more equitable news and information ecosystem in Boulder County, CO (Chris Barge)  Local journalism across the U.S. is struggling to find ways to not only survive, but to thrive. Faced with shrinking budgets, ownership that values profit above all, and, often, a legacy of failing to reflect and serve diverse sectors of the community, the future of local journalism is unsure.Boulder County, CO, reflects these national trends. And the area is also nearly 15% self-identifying Hispanic or Latino/a and growing, many of whom speak Spanish as a first language.Community Foundation Boulder County, through two years of deep listening in the community, has come to understand that there is both a need and an opportunity for deeply reported local stories that cross diverse sectors of the community, reflecting the lived reality of those community members that is often not covered in local media.Come hear how this community foundation is using two decades of community indicators reporting as a cornerstone of a new, Equity Reporting Initiative. It begins now, with a podcast debuting in October, 2019, that dives deep into the community's most pressing issues. Future plans include an Equity Reporting Lab that will provide training and financial support for enterprise reporting on these issues; plus a Solutions Fund, which would allow the foundation to accelerate the community's response to issues raised by the reporting, through convenings, advocacy, organizing and grants to organizations addressing these issues.
b) Data accessibility as a pathway to genuine equality for Atlanta’s westside communities   (Katie OConnell) Data is a dominant force during the decision-making process. It can help determine which roads to expand and the optimal location for a grocery store. Data can also be used to influence which schools to shutter and “appropriate” city services to discontinue. Considered fact-based, objective, and impartial, data often trumps emotional appeals during the final evaluation of a project; thus creating a power imbalance between those with the resources to access data and those without. The Communities Who Know Data Dashboard works to build and sustain relationships among constituencies located in West Atlanta with the goal to strengthen partnerships around issues of common concern. By allowing West Atlanta advocacy groups to easily retrieve data, the CWK Data Dashboard empowers residents, nonprofits, and neighborhood associations to be full participants in the decision-making process

A Theory of Change to Increase Civic Participation and Representation in Public Planning
Across systems, public planning and decision making are often disconnected from culture and community. To ensure the development of equitable policies, a cross-sector collaboration created and implemented a new theory of change to increase civic participation and representation in public planning processes. The model employs a three-pronged approach that moves through leadership development, inclusive planning, and decision-making. The collaboration and resulting program examined the intersection between adaptations to the built environment and social determinants of health.

a) Municipal Measurement of the Triple Bottom Line: Capturing Anticipated Economic, Social and Environmental Impacts b) Indicators of Personal Agency to measure urban youth work readiness programs
a) Municipal Measurement of the Triple Bottom Line: Capturing Anticipated Economic, Social and Environmental Impacts (Katie Ricketts) Getting municipal project managers to think about policy and programmatic impacts outside of their (often) narrow area of expertise can be a challenge. Getting City Council and Executive Leadership to digest distilled but complicated information that accurately reflects the trade-offs along economic, social and environmental aspects might be even harder. At the City of Fort Collins, our internal Triple Bottom Line Scan (TBL-S) team has spent the last 5 years using a human-centered design approach for developing a functional, municipal TBL-S decision making tool that integrates the needs of busy, overwhelmed program managers while also illuminating a diverse set of tensions and potential impacts for Council and executive leadership to consider. We want share the lessons we've learned, the failures we've had, and the successes we've achieved as we've fine-tuned our tool for internal policy and decision-making when trade-offs along social, economic and environmental constraints must be considered.
b) Indicators of Personal Agency to measure urban youth work readiness programs (Peg Thomas)  The Youth Social Entrepreneurship (YSE) Model used by nonprofits: youth-centric, youth-led business or community social initiatives that include the development of entrepreneurial thought, community engagement, social-emotional learning and workforce readiness, has proven to be evidence-based as the result of a 24-month study with 11 programs serving almost 900 youth. Specific gains in youth personal agency are remarkable. The study has implications for indicators used in future studies.

Considering Health: a) What's Health Got to Do With It? b) A Colorado Health Equity Data and Storytelling Platform: Harnessing the Power of Communities
Considering Health:
a) What's Health Got to Do With It? (Emma Connell, Paul Mattessich) In this session, we will primarily discuss our process of identifying, compiling, and analyzing health and economic indicators for a study of how health impacts a community’s economic vitality. We will also discuss implications and opportunities for other organizations interested in doing similar work.
b) A Colorado Health Equity Data and Storytelling Platform: Harnessing the Power of Communities (Jennifer Newcomer)  The Colorado Trust believes that everyone deserves the chance to grow up healthy and thrive. Yet, this is not the reality for many of Colorado’s residents, largely due to where they happen to live, or the color of their skin. Over the past several years, The Colorado Trust has been working with Shift Research Lab to develop an approach to engage communities across Colorado for the development of an innovative online platform that will share compelling data and stories in ways that help promote health equity. Pilot implementation is beginning this year. This platform will share Colorado-focused, community-level data on health inequities and the underlying systemic factors that create inequities. By elevating information that is responsive and appropriate for each community, including the integration of stories depicting life experiences of residence in communities, data-driven decisions can be made that are crucial for realizing the vision of fair and equal opportunity for all residents to achieve good health. This session will focus on sharing the current process to engage a larger end-user base to inform the project, connecting existing efforts, including build the base of stewardship across the state that will be a necessary component for impact, as well as sharing Shift’s role as the data and research-backbone for the platform.

b) Resiliency Planning in Conservative Communities (Stephen Buckman)
How to plan and work with politically conservative and antagonistic communities who are often opposed to land use changes and property restrictions? Planners are well trained to see ways to make the urban form “better” but we often overlook the fact that many people simple do not want what is proposed.

Data collected in this inaugural report is also intended to provide a cursory overview of the entrepreneur ecosystem, which currently has limited quantitative data and has systematically invalidated, overlooked and untapped, the perspective of the communities the data is intended to represent. This report intentionally honors such qualitative data by recognizing that much of the information contained inside these pages are the voices, experiences, knowledge, stories, and traditions of women, people of color, LGBTQ, Indigenous, rural, immigrant and other underestimated communities.

A Community-Based Participatory Research Approach to Creating a Shared Measurement System to Address Community Food Insecurity
This session provides a case study example and an in-depth look at: a) what it takes to use a community-based participatory research (CBPR) approach to create a set of shared indicators at a community level with a diverse set of non-profit organizations; b) the actual domains and indicators that were co-created through an iterative process; and c) the strengths, challenges and limitation of utilizing this approach to evaluate a community-level initiative.

This session will be of particular interest to organizations and funders who are working on place-based impact initiatives, those who are exploring new approaches focused on systems changes, and how to design useful evaluations to understand impact at multiple scales.
