The live conversation, which aired on November 1, 2023, explored how community development corporations (CDCs) can utilize data and research techniques to produce community-driven and community-defined evidence. Colleen Flynn, Co-Executive Director at BHPN spoke with BIPOC-led CDCs who are creating and using community-driven data collection and evaluation strategies to help solve for the root causes of racial inequality in their communities. We also heard from Verge Impact Partners – a public health equity consulting firm – who shared strategies to help CDCs develop data collection and evaluation goals so that it aligns with the values and visions of the communities they serve.
