The goal of the CTData Academy is to increase data literacy, build data capacity and enable nonprofits, state and local government, community groups, and organizations across the state to effectively use their own data, open data, and data from other sources, for the purpose of understanding, measuring, advocating, and impacting lives. Drawing on our history as a user-driven, public-private organization that has advocated for greater access to high quality data, convened stakeholder conversations, held six statewide conferences and provided targeted technical assistance to local organizations, the Connecticut Data Collaborative, in partnership with Connecticut’s Chief Data Officer, is the primary convener and coordinator of the CTData Academy.
