Create a data dashboard for action: A hands-on workshop

Build a visual data dashboard that easily tells the story of the community wellbeing from the county to the neighborhood level.



Join this bilingual training and learn to easily create a dashboard of hand-picked data indicators grouped by specific measures that track or gauge progress or status on county-level wellbeing goals and programs.

Dashboards are panels of hand-picked indicators, which are often grouped by a general topic such as Mental Health, Food Insecurity, etc. Indicator dashboards track or gauge specific measures on the county’s progress or status on a topic and can be powerful tools to tell a story of needs, gaps, strengths and opportunities.

Join Sarah Adler, DSSCC assistant, Nicole Lezin and Nicole Young of CORE Investments and Jason Borgen of Santa Cruz County Office of Education in this hands-on training.

Training is aimed at an audience with some knowledge and understanding in leveraging data. Training participants will walk away from the training with a basic dashboard which can be embedded in a website, reports, fact sheets and presentations.
