DATA

Data Deep Dives

We cannot change what we cannot measure! West Sound STEM Network utilizes a number of comprehensive data sources to inform our own work as well as share with our partners.  These include WA STEM “CORI”, STEM by the Numbers, numerous Washington State Workforce Development Councils and the OSPI School Report Card.
 

WSSN regularly hosts Regional Summits, listening sessions, roundtables, and events to center equity by examining existing systems, co-creating change with partners from populations furthest from opportunity, and providing tools and resources.

Policy Engagement

From Summits and Data Deep Dives to lectures and special events, West Sound STEM offers multiple opportunities for the public and private sectors to explore regional data, discuss workforce, educational and equity-based issues, share best practices, legislative news and network.

 

WSSN, in partnership with other Networks, WA STEM and Career Connect Washington, participate in and lead two-way conversations with elected officials.

These Roundtables are regularly convened with elected leaders including Senator Christine Rolfes, OSPI Superintendent Chris Reykdal and Senator Emily Randall who provide regular updates to the WSSN Executive Board and Leadership Teams.

We use data to drive strategy and measure success.
