ABNN Data to Action

Let’s move from talking to doing!

PolicyWise for Children & Families, in partnership with the Alberta Nonprofit Network (ABNN), facilitated two 1-day Data to Action events in Edmonton (February 5, 2019) and in Calgary (June 4, 2019). The purpose was focused on learning and developing better data competency.

Participants worked together with other stakeholders to gather information about how to think strategically about their data, what elements are needed to build organizational capacity for data and evidence, and how to draw data into compelling stories.

What we heard…

Those who attended the Data to Action events were asked to complete evaluation forms and a short survey letting us know how we did. Here is what we gathered from both events:


“The quality of speakers and their realistic foundations, their genuine desire to share their experiences and current challenges and wins, were really meaningful. It’s not something I can quantify rather, see as an acknowledgement that this is deep work and not easily achieved. The way you structured every element of the workshops led to very real networking and the potential for future collaboration. Very rare. “


“I really enjoyed the whole day and found it very helpful. I’m only disappointed that I was not able to participate in all three workshops.”


“It was a great opportunity for people to come together and highlight the importance of good data work.”
