The Event

This fall, the National Partnership for Educational Access (NPEA) will hold a series of Data Trainings in Boston, Chicago, and New York City.

Our Chicago training will take place on Tuesday, November 19 from 9:00am-2:30pm at the Chicago Scholars Community Leadership Resource Center in downtown Chicago. This hands-on training will be an opportunity to join other education access programs, schools, and funders to discuss data analysis through an equity lens, grapple with a mock data set in small groups, engage in thoughtful discussion around strategies and best practices for using data to inform and improve program practices, and leave with helpful tips and tools.

We are excited to come together to discuss best practices for collecting, analyzing, using data, and working together to identify opportunities for using data to tell a story and improve program impact.
