Welcome to Episode 3 of These Are Our Kids: A Podcast for JDAIconnect.
In today's episode we talk about data. Yep, data. And before you judge the episode and wonder how in the world this topic could be appealing, have a listen. Our guest Jason Melchi, is the Chief Data Dude. He is engaging, interesting and his passion for data and bridge-building with data is infectious. He's an IT guy with a service heart. Listen and you'll understand.
Jason is the owner of Empact Solutions - a social entrepreneurship with a mission of leveraging backgrounds in data, social work, evaluation and organizational development to empower justice systems and their partners to inspire positive impact through data-informed decision-making. They help to demystify data by using an approach that is as much social work as it is data work, meeting organizations where they are at while providing innovative and accessible consulting services.
In this episode of our podcast, Jason talks about the new data core strategy pages on JDAIconnect, data visualization, and bringing empathy into the data work. We also talk about baseball and Indiana - where he first started his work with JDAI. Nancy Wever - you and the fine folks of Indiana don't want to miss this episode.
Here's a look, to go along with the listen, of the Chief Date Dude in action.
We are looking forward to your comments about our conversation with Jason Melchi.
