Data gathering and shared measurement systems are key elements for collective impact initiatives to better understand and assess their work, but can be also very challenging to start and sustain. What can we learn from other initiatives about their practices related to gathering and sharing data, and what impact it had on their outcomes?

In this virtual coffee, we're talking about gathering and sharing data with Emily Bradley and Michael Nailat, program officers at Home for Good, an initiative that works collaboratively on systems and solutions to end homelessness.

This virtual coffee was held on August 14, 2018 from 3pm – 4pm ET.

Note: For the first 2-3 minutes of the session, the audio goes in and out a bit. After this short period, it evens out and is audible for the rest of the 60-minute session.

Home for Good was one of 25 sites that participated in the research study When Collective Impact has an Impact. This new study, more than a year in the making, looks at the question of “To what extent and under what conditions does the collective impact approach contribute to systems and population changes?”
