Helping the Helpers: Data-Driven Support for Community Vulnerabilities

John Ridener, Open Data Community Liason, San Mateo County 
Patrick Hammons, Solution Engineer, Esri

DESCRIPTION: This hands-on workshop will focus on San Mateo County's Community Vulnerability Index (CVI) https://cmo.smcgov.org/cvi as a framework for data driven policy, storytelling, and as a means of supporting community services through mapping and data. The CVI serves as a means of engaging County departments, community-based organizations, and OpenSMC (the local Brigade) to identify potential service gaps and opportunities to connect local organizations to data and create a framework to explore associated data without barriers to data collection. Attendees will participate in a structured exercise to surface topics and community-based organizations they can assist in their missions through the CVI's framework and have an opportunity to work with Esri's Hub, Open Data platform, and ArcGIS online during the workshop.    

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Brigade leaders/members who are looking for a data-driven way to identify potential projects and community partners based on need and government folks who want to establish a baseline for program evaluation and find data-driven means to identify potential populations and locations of need.
