Please share this invitation with others in your collaboratives!
What? This series of virtual learning sessions are an opportunity to hear from local, state, and national-level experts on early childhood education, maternal/child health, child welfare, and education data.

What is in it for you? Structured as a series, participants will walk away from these sessions with:
- Data for your community including, public health, early education, education, childcare, child welfare and safety data.
- Tangible next steps for your community collaborative to use the data accessed in these sessions to help further your work.
- Ideas from other Texas communities that have successfully used data to strengthen their work, resulting in raised public awareness of needs, improved outcomes, and increased funding.
- Examples of how state level experts have integrated data into their work.
What are we asking from you as a participant? This series of virtual sessions will be interactive, so we hope that participants come ready to roll up their sleeves and ready to work!
