Building Data Capacity to Enhance Opportunity in Indianapolis
In January and February 2020, SAVI partnered with Lilly Endowment to put on workshops orienting participants to what existing data reveal about economic opportunity and equity in Indianapolis, build their capacity to ask effective questions, and teach them about available data sources and how to use SAVI data and tools. These are the video and materials from those workshops.
