Making Data Actionable in Child Maltreatment Prevention: A Toolkit for Collective Impact
October 26, 2021 @ 2:30 pm - 4:00 pm
The Colorado Partnership for Thriving Families (CPTF) has publicly released a toolkit that aims to help partners across human service, public health, child welfare, and early childhood spaces use data in actionable ways for child maltreatment prevention and family strengthening. The toolkit was co-designed and co-created by families, communities, and health and human service leaders that hold a shared goal of well-being for families with children prenatal to one. The Colorado Lab serves as the strategic research partner to the Partnership and facilitated toolkit co-development.
Join the Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab, Illuminate Colorado, and CPTF leadership in exploring the toolkit and how to make data work for you! Our focus will be on how a collective impact approach to data, practice, and policy can catalyze systems-change for family well-being. We will learn about leading frameworks for public health approaches to child maltreatment prevention and family strengthening; accessible data sources that can help you identify community needs and monitor progress of prevention work; explore opportunities to use data to promote equity; and discuss cross-system strategies for measuring success of prevention investments from a collective impact lens.
Who should attend this session? All human service, public health, and early childhood partners interested in actionable data and collective impact for child maltreatment prevention and family strengthening are welcome! This session may be of particular interest to state and local level directors desiring data-informed prevention investments, data and research/evaluation staff at county and state agencies supporting prevention work, and individuals implementing local collaboration initiatives focused on cross-system prevention strategies.
