What does the Data Initiative's new 
7-county lens mean for your organization?

As The Piton Foundation's Data Initiative shifts its focus from a historically Denver-centric one to a regional view, you're invited to learn how exciting upgrades to this long-running program can help integrate data and technology more directly into your organization.

This open house event will:
  • Introduce new and geographically-expanded community information tools that are currently in development
  • Begin to engage community leaders in the design discovery process and testing of the Data Initiative's new Community Facts web-based application.
  • Highlight the Data Initiative's past projects and areas of expertise to show how data-driven decision-making can support community change  
Due to space availability, this event will be capped at 75 attendees. Depending on level of interest, we will consider hosting additional events. If you cannot attend but would like to receive Data Initiative updates, please contact Jennifer Newcomer. We look forward to seeing you on June 5!
