Ideas and Insights from Living Cities’ Integration Initiative

Our third issue of At the Table: Ideas and Insights from The Integration Initiative explores how learning is the key measure of progress towards systems change, and how programs serve as a mechanism to learn about a system. We discuss how data is a key factor in this learning, but that there are many challenges to initiatives collecting and using data in strategic ways. We also sat down with Jonathan Sage-Martinson, Director of the Central Corridor Funders Collaborative, to discuss efforts in the Twin Cities to align the workforce and economic development systems.

These pieces reflect thinking during specific points in time in the midst of complex multi-year work.
