2017-18 Data & Research Coordinator
Our vision is to ensure success for every child, in every Milwaukee school, cradle to career. The Greater Milwaukee Foundation serves as the backbone organization for Milwaukee Succeeds—lending its facilities, administrative services, financial resources, and community leadership to this initiative. In addition to the Greater Milwaukee Foundation, four other organizations have pledged to support this initiative over the next five years: Northwestern Mutual, Bader Philanthropies, United Way of Greater Milwaukee and Waukesha Counties, and Herb Kohl Charities. Milwaukee Succeeds uses a collective impact model designed to create systems change in the education sector across the city. Our partnership is comprised of representatives from over 300 schools, nonprofits, businesses, government, philanthropic organizations, and community members, working in collaborative action networks. These networks identify, align, and scale innovative strategies that move the needle on educational outcomes. The Data & Research Coordinator works across our enterprise to support this work. When we asked our current VISTA "how does understanding data inform the work of Milwaukee Succeeds?" he provided the following response: "When people think of data, often what comes to mind is a giant spreadsheet full of numbers. But the power of data comes in its diversity. That spreadsheet is data, but so are survey responses, or even comments gathered from conversation or focus groups. Data is anything we can use to inform our day-to-day. At Milwaukee Succeeds, data is a powerful tool for guiding strategy and moving forward in our work. It helps us identify best practices and bright spots, analyze pilot program successes, and help focus efforts where they need to go to be the most effective." ***Please note, while we will except applications through the application deadline, we will hold interviews on a rolling basis.
