For ten years, the Baltimore Neighborhood Indicators Alliance has hosted Baltimore Data Day, a perennially fascinating deep dive into the ways that data can be leveraged to create positive change in communities. The tradition continues this year, albeit in slightly different form, as Baltimore Data Week, a week of virtual sessions engaging a wide range of people and organizations. The full agenda is here.
OSI-Baltimore is proud to participate in two sessions.
On Thursday, July 23rd at 5pm, OSI Director of Strategic Communications Evan Serpick will moderate a conversation on “Using Resident Data to Address Neighborhood Concerns,” which will focus on the Blueprint for Baltimore project and how communities can use the data to create change. Participants will include Jose Serrano-McClain and Eri Furusawa of HR&A, which helped facilitate the survey, Tre Murphy of Organizing Black, one of the five community organizations that led the effort, and BNIA’s Seema D. Iyer, who will demonstrate the Blueprint for Baltimore Open Data Portal. Register here.
On Friday, July 24th at 10am, OSI Director Danielle Torain will participate in a conversation on “Using Data to Support and Invest in Baltimore,” where participants will “learn how philanthropy and investors use data to shape how they collaborate, prioritize their grant making, and advance racial equity during the current pandemic and beyond.” Yinka Bode-George of the Maryland Philanthropy Network will moderate the conversation, which will also include John Brothers of the T Rowe Price Foundation and Jamye Wooten of CLLCTIVLY.
