Inclusive Data Workshop Social Posts_V3

Learn and practice simple techniques for updating your organization’s data practices to be more integrated with and representative of the community you serve.  Join us for a 90-minute virtual interactive workshop where you will walk away with an action plan for promoting a culture of data inclusivity at your organization.

Who is this workshop for:

  • Program leaders of nonprofits, state and local agencies, school districts, and other community-based organizations
  • Data managers, program staff, and others responsible for measuring and demonstrating programmatic outcomes


In this workshop you will:

Develop a deeper understanding of how to practically integrate more equitable data-driven decision-making in your everyday work. We will share best practices for incorporating representative voices into data-driven programming — from program design to measurement to decision-making — and the practical tools and templates to help you get started right away. You will identify facilitators and barriers to inclusive data practices at your organization and develop a set of actions to carry forward after the workshop. Your learning experience will be a blend of peer sharing, individual exploration, and experiential learning (breakout rooms and reflections). Throughout this course you will:

  • Learn how to avoid pitfalls of common data practices that can exacerbate bias
  • Gain exposure to inclusive design, measure, act tools and techniques
  • Examine how biases emerge in data analysis and interpretation
  • Explore methods for recruiting more diverse voices to collaborate in building your program design and data practice
  • Learn about others’ challenges and strategies for becoming more inclusive and representative organizations
  • Build a responsive plan to transform your organization’s data mindset, skillset, and toolset, considering current capacities and context


Participants will walk away with a solid foundation to:

  • Promote an organizational culture of inclusive data and evaluation practices
  • Identify hidden pitfalls that inhibit inclusive data practices
  • (Re)design data collection to be more accessible to diverse audiences
  • Shift power dynamics from extractive to collaborative
