Common Good VT is pleased to partner with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits to present this shared webinar. Please contact [email protected] with questions about this event

The key to good data collection is not knowing everything but instead knowing what questions to ask in order to do ethical, thoughtful, and intentional data collection. What assumptions are we making? We will talk about what to consider not just methodologically but also contextually and historically while preparing for data collection. This workshop will include a presentation, time for individual and group reflection, and a short break!
