Part 1: Is It Legal? Is It Ethical? Is It a Good Idea? An Introduction to Cross Sector Data Sharing

September 3, 2:00 – 3:00 p.m. CDT

Are you newly interested in data sharing and wondering where to start? Are you working on building shared language and understanding with new data partners? A new resource from AISP, ​Introduction to Data Sharing and Integration​, provides a developmental approach to building a strong foundation for your effort. It provides a framework and helpful planning activities for ethical and responsible cross-sector data use by partnerships, collaboratives, agencies, and community initiatives.

The ​Introduction to Data Sharing and Integration ​covers the benefits, limitations, and risks of data sharing, and outlines best practices for strong planning, governance, legal, and technical approaches. It also includes use case examples for successful cross-sector data integration based upon AISP’s decade of work alongside our Network and Learning Community sites.

Materials for this webinar will be available soon.

Part 2: How Do You Center Racial Equity Throughout the Data Life Cycle?

September 22, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CDT

Data integration by local and state governments is undertaken for the public good: by breaking down program silos, practitioners and policy-makers can address the often interconnected needs of families and communities more effectively and holistically. Yet, the way that
cross-sector data are used can also reinforce legacies of racist policies and produce inequitable resource allocation, access, and outcomes.

Since 2019, AISP has led a diverse workgroup of civic data stakeholders to co-create strategies and identify best practices to center racial equity throughout the administrative data reuse life cycle. AISP’s new ​Toolkit for Centering Racial Equity Throughout Data Integration​ includes broad guidance on encouraged and discouraged data access and use and describes positive and problematic practices for centering racial equity across the six stages of the data life cycle.

Part 3: Successfully Engaging Stakeholders to Center Racial Equity Across the Data Life Cycle

October 14, 2:00 PM – 3:00 PM CDT

Cross-sector data sharing and integration enable the transformation of individual-level information into actionable intelligence that can be used to understand community needs, improve services, and build stronger communities. While most data sharing and integration occurs within a legal and governance framework, an emphasis on racial equity, transparency, and community engagement is often peripheral. This is especially troubling because government policies and programs that produce administrative data have often played a direct role in creating, enabling, and sustaining institutional and structural racism. This webinar will include “Work in Action” sites featured in the ​Toolkit for Centering Racial Equity Throughout Data Integration​ ​as places where agencies are proactively centering racial equity during administrative data reuse.
