Conference: PDG B-5 Virtual Convening Date: October 21, 2021 Presenters: Cindy Weigel This session introduced participants to (1) data leadership and your role in asking questions about equity and using data to answer those questions, and (2) building a culture of data use with equity in mind. Pursuing Equity Through a Culture of Data Use
The DaSy toolkit is a resource containing information, guidance, and templates to help Part C and Part B 619 program staff build effective data teams and support conditions for a culture of data use at the state and local levels. The toolkit is organized around key steps to building a culture of data use in your state or local team. Each step includes an overview, considerations and data team resources (e.g., videos, infographics, templates, and blogs), and tips for how to use resources included in each section. As agencies use the data culture tools contained here, they will be able to 1) increase the participation and focus of their data teams and 2) review and make improvements to data quality and the processes used to gather, monitor, analyze, and use data.
The goal of this session was to define elements of a strong data use culture, examine what it means to be a data leader, explore how to effectively engage diverse stakeholders, and provide resources to help participants assess and improve their data use culture.
This DaSy toolkit contains information, guidance, and templates to assist Part C and Part B 619 program staff with creating or enhancing their data governance policies and procedures. For each data governance topic, an overview, consideration questions, and a fillable Microsoft Word template is provided.
