Events at Northeastern Crossing

October, 2018

Friday05October9:00 am12:00 pmBoston Area Research Initiative(BARI) TrainingBARI has partnered with Northeastern Crossing to host a series of community-based trainings on the Boston Data Portal, BARI's platform for analyzing and accessing data about Boston. Given the Boston Data Portal’s ability to accommodate various levels of data literacy, BARI feels it is essential that our data resources, which are originally generated by the public, make their way back to the public in a way that might be useful to them. These trainings demonstrate how the Boston Data Portal can help these organizations to learn more about the neighborhoods and communities they serve, and to pursue a more informed advocacy for local challenges and needs. Northeastern Crossing has assisted BARI with recruitment, targeting organizations that stand to benefit from greater access to data. To date, we have trained representatives from over 25 non-profits in Boston. For more information about the Boston Data Portal, we encourage people to visit our website or email us at bari@northeastern.edu9:00 am - 12:00 pm EST
