*Formally known as Data Literacy Institute Workshops*

What are Data Engagement Workshops?

In 2018, OSH, in collaboration with the CoC, launched the Data Literacy Institute, now known as Data Engagement Workshops. The workshops consist of a series of training opportunities and development of learning materials for the CoC and community partners. The goal is to help staff at all levels enhance their understanding of the data collected in HMIS, how to measure program performance, and how to use data to effectively communicate the success of your programs.
