To&Through Data Collaborative: Innovare & the Chicago Literacy Alliance

September 14 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Learn about and give feedback on Innovare – Social Innovation Partners and the Chicago Literacy Alliance’s new LEI: Insights dashboard.

Nick Freeman will co-present the LEI:Insights Dashboard, with Annie Rezac and Kaitlyn Childs of the Chicago Literacy Alliance.

LEI:Insights, powered by Innovare, provides a shared map and a common set of data to empower the Chicago Literacy Alliance (CLA) and its member organizations to make strategic, data-informed decisions to address the opportunity and access gaps facing Chicago communities.

Nick is the President and Co-Founder of Innovare – Social Innovation Partners, an Ed-Tech firm whose data strategy application empowers education leaders to impact students and communities.

Annie is the Director of Strategic Initiatives at the Chicago Literacy Alliance, a non-profit organization helping to meet literacy needs for people of all ages and backgrounds.

Kaitlyn, the Network and Evaluation Specialist at the Chicago Literacy Alliance, brings expertise in a range of research methodologies to communicate meaningful insights with data.

The To&Through Data Collaborative is a space for the presentation and discussion of new work in education data in Chicago. The group meets to hear about a new body of work and give feedback on a problem of practice or project. During each presentation, we aim to accomplish three goals:

  • Build community among educational leaders focused on educational equity.
  • Highlight innovative and emerging educational/youth-serving data work.
  • Provide honest and actionable feedback to help improve our colleagues’ work.

RSVPs will be required in order for guests to receive the Zoom information prior to each session, however, the sessions are open to everyone! If you have any questions or would like to be added to or removed from the listserv, please email dmckoy@uchicago.edu.
