March National Convening

March 27–29, 2023

Training Details


Washington, DC

Leveraging program administrative data is more important than ever to solve pressing public concerns. And we have a real window of opportunity to make progress right now! We encourage state program and data leaders to come to DC at the end of March and join other state workforce and higher education agencies in building multi-state data collaboratives at the 3rd Annual National Convening: Cross-Agency Collaboration for Evidence-Building. The state driven regional collaboratives support agencies as they innovate in the use of data for the betterment of society. NASWA is the backbone administering organization providing policy, advocacy, and meeting services to collaboratives, under a foundation grant. The Coleridge Initiative provides technical services, including applied advanced data analytics training and data hosting, management, and access. Come to DC and help grow this critical ecosystem. There are no entry requirements!

Here's how to get involved:

  1. On March 27, 2023, join state agency representatives and partner entities supporting multi-state data collaboratives from 1:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to learn about the multi-state data collaboratives and inform the agenda and strategic priorities for the coming year. Registration for this state day meeting is open.
  2. The Coleridge Initiative's 3rd Annual National Convening: Cross-Agency Collaboration for Evidence-Building will follow on March 28th and 29th. The general registration is closed for these two days; however, Coleridge is keeping registration open for state agency participants for a limited time. State participants who wish to attend the full convening should reach out to to see if registration slots are available.

Hope to see you there!
