Three presentations that show innovations to make data count:
1) Taking performance monitoring to the next level: Reporting on Community indicators (Larson/Sandkamp)
 Government monitoring programs are rarely equipped to adequately address the complexity of society, since they often focus on the programmatic activities that we can control. The City of Minneapolis recognizes that, though we can't control many social outcomes, we have a responsibility to better understand what it means to live here and be a part of our community. This session would take participants through our indicator setting process, including examples of high-quality community engagement and into the reports and roundtables themselves, as we discuss meaningful ways to tie an organization's work to larger community outcomes and get people across departments and sectors talking to one another

2) How Aunt Bertha innovates to meet real-time community needs (Johnson): Aunt Bertha, a Public Benefit Corporation based in Austin, TX, is a national resource with real-time data about the services individuals in our communities are looking for and whether or not they are able to find help. Our users, people searching for free and reduced cost social service programs, are our "north star" as we navigate the ever-changing waters of this space: we are accountable to their needs and learn from their actions when making key business decisions. In this presentation, we will share our experiences building responsive data systems that inform internal product design and features, as well as data sharing with our customers and other community leaders. We will walk participants through the iterative journey from raw data to measurable impact, and explore potential for collaboration. 

3) Establishing Indicator Systems as a Piece of Social Infrastructure in the Community (Granger/Temmer) In this presentation we will share the recent experiences and lessons learned in establishing the Peg indicator system as a piece of social infrastructure in the community. The objective of this presentation is to share new approaches to engaging different types of stakeholders, establishing Peg in systemic processes (e.g., education and health), and exploring formal connections with collective impact. Together this establishes Peg as a "go-to?\" source for information and a decision-making tool for improving well being in Winnipeg. A question period will also allow the audience to share their experiences and strategies for how they are establishing themselves within their own communities.
