Boston Indicators Project Honored with the CIC 2013 Impact Award
At the 2013 Impact Summit, the Community Indicators Consortium recognized the Boston Indicators Project for its outstanding contribution to the indicators field. Jessica Martin, Research Director, accepted the award on behalf of the Boston Indicators Project. Jessica Martin has been the project's research director since 2006, helping to maintain and continually enhance the high-quality information and analysis provided by the Boston Indicators Project. She is following in the footsteps of recently retired Project co-founder Charlotte Kahn who has been a strong leader in the field of indicators, working with the National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership and the Open Indicators Consortium, and was past president of the Community Indicators Consortium. Boston Indicators Project has long been recognized as one of the nation's leading community indicators projects and many of us in the field owe a debt of gratitude to the model she established there.
Boston Indicators is an initiative of the Boston Foundation and its key partners, the City of Boston and the Metropolitan Area Planning Council. Since it released its first iteration in 2002, the Boston Indicators Project has offered new ways to understand Boston and its neighborhoods in a regional, national and global context. It aims to democratize access to information, foster informed public discourse, track progress on shared civic goals, and report on change. Its Emerging Civic Agenda convenes Greater Boston's business and civic leaders to focus on and respond to regional competitiveness issues. The Project also sponsors seminars to bring people together across the city and region, with an emphasis on new and emerging leaders.
