Promise Partnership Utah facilitates a collective impact network that includes data sharing with education, basic needs, municipal, and youth-serving nonprofit partners. Together, these partners collaborate to center racial equity and community voice in the creation, governance, and use of a Community Information Exchange data system. This information ecosystem (1) provides comprehensive and streamlined support to students and families in meeting their basic needs and (2) enables our community to understand, evaluate, and improve the functioning of these systems over time.
The Promise Partnership’s EiLPC participation will allow us to build on existing efforts for data integration, participatory data governance, and community engagement that supports our cross-sector collective impact initiative, as included in our 5-year strategic planning. Through a data sharing system, the Promise Partnership hopes to use data to accelerate targeted universalism strategies toward our 5-year goals of 100% graduation and basic needs met in two high-opportunity communities in our region.
