Turning Data Into Insight

Thursday, April 29, 10-11am PST

Rory Adams,Amer ican Pets Alive and Sarah Aguilar, Austin Pets Alive

Data is one of the essential tools that leadership, staff, and advocates have, yet it often seems overwhelming and impossible to understand. How might we use our own data to inform programs, decisions and share with advocates and staff to work toward common goals and understanding?

Leave this presentation knowing the common discrepancies in shelter data, significant differences between micro and macro data (and what they can and can’t show us), the data you need to understand to make informed decisions and answer commonly asked questions. You will learn how to understand what these numbers are telling you and how to use this information to advocate for your programs and save more lives.
