Measure What Matters in Carolina Across 100: Our Work, Our State
March 22 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
Carolina made a bold declaration last year. After carefully listening to thousands of voices, we would partner with communities in each of the state’s 100 counties to tackle the most pressing challenges coming out of COVID-19. This Engagement Week session focuses on how statewide and community stakeholders think about the success of community partnerships throughout the Carolina Across 100 initiative, especially the first programmatic effort to prepare and connect young adults currently not connected to employment or education with work opportunities. It will make clear why this type of community engagement relies on deep, meaningful collaboration, often between partners and stakeholders who represent different constituent groups, employment sectors and educational disciplines, who, as a result, may have different priorities for success. The session will include an interactive discussion of why defining, capturing and evaluating success is such an important aspect of Carolina Across 100. Hear from internal and external stakeholders about what success means to them. Together, we will determine what matters and what we measure. Expect this session to be highly engaging with lots of opportunities for audience members to share thoughts on success and how to measure it.
