Data Insights Academy

What is the Academy?

The Data User Insights Academy is a collaborative learning environment in which state-based teams of data producers (state LMI agencies) and data users come together over a 9-month period—in-person and virtually—to identify opportunities to build closer relationships as well as work on addressing specific challenges related to the use and communication of LMI data in their state.

State teams will be provided with a team of experienced facilitators as well ongoing technical assistance and subject matter expert support. Each team will work at their own pace alongside teams from other states going through the same process, creating the opportunity for peer learning and cross-state coordination.

By the end of the process, teams will have identified and begun implementing initiatives, policy innovations, and models of collaboration that lead to improved data sharing and communication between producers and users.
