  • Registration Opens for March IForum

    The Partnership for Strong Communities and the Connecticut Chapter of the American Planning Association will host Drowning in Big Data: Translating Numbers into Meaningful Messages.  The program will be held at The Lyceum, 227 Lawrence Street, Hartford, on Monday, March 19th from 8:30-11:00.  Here is a synopsis of the program:

    We live in an age of big data. The proliferation of housing-related data provides new opportunities to explore why housing matters. Effectively synthesizing and translating results in a meaningful way can be challenging. Tiffany Manuel, Vice President of Knowledge, Impact and Strategy at Enterprise Community Partners will share why messages supporting affordable housing expansion often backfire and how we can make simple changes to avoid these common pitfalls.

    Additionally, a panel of data practitioners from across Connecticut (CT Data Collaborative, United Way, and the Public and Affordable Housing Research Corporation (PAHRC)) will provide an interactive review of how to access and leverage data to effectively expand support for a range of housing issues. Using live polling, the panel will explore how to locate these data and share best practices when using data for housing advocacy.
