Community Catalyst Webinar Series for Extension Professionals


Please join us for an upcoming six-part webinar series exclusively designed for you, the Extension professional. This series features leaders and researchers from Iowa, Oregon, and Virginia who can help you transform your work with data-driven learning and discovery. This vibrant dialogue will provide you with tools to maximize your time, develop responsive programs using data insights, and foster impact in collaboration with communities. Visit this page to register.

After participating in this six-part series, you will be able to use new strategies to:

  • Engage community stakeholders to identify issues
  • Build partnerships with communities and subject experts
  • Provide data insight for decision makers,
  • Share learnings to drive positive change
  • Support communities in taking the next step towards addressing issues

In short, as the issues that confront communities of all sizes become increasingly complex, you can help. Specifically you can work with decision makers to build an equitable and sustainable social transformation within and across communities that addresses their most pressing needs. This series focuses on equipping you with state-of-the-art approaches to data-informed decision making – and because of you, the Cooperative Extension Service will continue to play a key role in supporting the development and facilitation of this national community learning network.

This series is made possible by our three-state partnership and funding support from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Please make plans to join us for as many sessions as your schedule allows. You will need to register for each session to receive a calendar invite and zoom link. For more information on the partnership and project, I invite you to visit the Data Science for the Public Good initiative website.
