A Community Insights Laboratory for the Western Bay of Plenty
Data-driven intelligence has long been used successfully in technical and business endeavours. There is an emergence of community sector data science laboratories that can draw on qualitative and quantitative data and disseminate this information in ways that is easy to digest to inform planning and decision making for community organisations. Following a recent local feasibility study that demonstrated interest from the sector in such an initiative it is the right time for SociaLink, with funding from TECT, to be moving in this direction.
SociaLink are about to embark on this exciting new project and will be employing a person to work as our Community Insights Lab Manager.
