DataWorks NC (Durham)
DataWorks NC is a nonprofit organization whose mission is democratizing data to facilitate an empowered, productive, and equitable community. To that end, they have outlined three primary areas of focus for their work:
- Engage communities with data. They connect neighborhoods and community organizations with indicators, strengthening efforts to improve their neighborhoods. This includes direct technical support in mapping as well as data preparation and visualization.
- Convene and contribute to community conversations. They facilitate productive spaces for shared learning from different perspectives. They participate as an independent partner in policy discussions, guided by quantitative and qualitative data.
- Provide community data tools. They provide community data resources, including the Neighborhood Compass, that are regularly-updated and serve all partners equally.
