Communities all over the world deal with the challenges of creating or sustaining resilient communities that respect, integrate and support racial or cultural diversity in a way that strengthen their character or identity. When data can be turned into powerful narratives that breathe life and human values into statistics and deliver meaningful data trends, those communities have access to powerful tools to monitor, document and even anticipate issues, and increase accountability. This leads to better practices, sound policies or individual actions that can help close the inequality gaps. The 2015 Impact Summit is the premier gathering for those involved in the field of community measurement. We invite community-based practitioners, academic experts, engaged community residents, public officials, students, civic leaders, planners, media professionals and other stakeholders to learn from one another and participate in this active global learning experience.
