Presenters will lead a session on how to use the Opportunity Index to help spur action around issues of racial, economic and social equity in America. The Opportunity Index, and the indicators that comprise it, aim to measure what opportunity looks like at the state and county levels in the United States. The Index provides a snapshot of conditions that can be used to identify and improve access to opportunity for people and their communities. This workshop will help attendees understand and use data and storytelling to identify actionable steps that can create lasting solutions to improve opportunity.
