NLC Congressional City Conference

Synopsis

Whether your city is just getting started on using data or already has compelling examples of impact to share, regularly communicating your progress is a tremendous opportunity to demonstrate your government’s commitment to delivering results and to engage residents, staff, and local thought leaders who can reinforce and expand your efforts. That’s why the best practices outlined in What Works Cities Certification—the national standard of excellence for well-managed, data-driven local government—emphasize the importance of local governments and their chief executives communicating about their data work. Hear from Results for America, a lead What Works Cities partner, about how to adopt a communications mindset that goes beyond sharing big wins to creating an ongoing dialogue about your city’s data work.

Learning Objectives

  • Explore key strategies for communicating about your city’s data work, look at examples of cities and leaders sharing their progress effectively, and unpack what made those examples effective.
  • Explore a range of communications tools at your disposal and help you brainstorm ways to start using them in your own city.
