CTG Partners with SUNY’s Cradle to Career Alliance (C2C) to Identify Data Needs for Assessing Impact
June 26-27, 2014
CTG partnered with SUNY’s Cradle to Career Alliance (C2C) Annual Convening in New York City. This year’s convening was focused on the use of data analytics to support the goals of the Alliance partners. The conference provided knowledge sharing opportunities through both presentations and facilitated working sessions. Theresa Pardo [pictured] gave a plenary presentation on the changing data context highlighting the new world of “big data” and data science and a set of new resources available to support such efforts such as state and city level data portals and new “data executives.”
Theresa, along with Meghan Cook and Donna Canestraro facilitated the day-long working sessions, which were focused on helping the Alliance meet their goal of tracking their collective impact. CTG worked with participants to develop core performance indicators in selected program areas and to identify the necessary data and the challenges associated with getting and using that data as part of the process of understanding and communicating the collective impact of the Alliance.
