Better Outcomes and Collaboration: Houston My Brother's Keeper Pilot Study
Session materials from PEAK2019.
Many of society’s important issues are best addressed collectively, by actors that span the public, private, academic, and philanthropic sectors. Yet the data necessary to facilitate collaboration between these actors are often inaccessible, inconsistent, or unreliable. The challenge to collect and integrate data prevents organizations from having a complete picture of their work and the work of others, limiting their ability to improve community outcomes. These constraints are particularly debilitating for traditionally underserved communities. The My Brother’s Keeper Equity Intelligence Platform (MBK-EIP) builds President Barack Obama’s efforts to improve societal outcomes for boys and young men of color. Led by Bloomberg Associates, with technological support by BrightHive, the MBK-EIP pilot works in Houston, Oakland, and Chicago. The pilot sites serve as sources of data and as testbeds for identifying design needs and technical requirements for the data platform.
Participants will learn about:
Using a data trust, which is a cross-sector collaboration committed to sharing data, aligning metrics, and working together to solve a critical, societal issues
Using technology to structure and coordinate collaboration
Opportunities to link similar work in other cities and across the country
Facilitating data sharing through data governance or data-sharing agreements that also build collaboration among members
