The Third Annual Anthem Awards: Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Silver Winner - Mathematica

Our work with Mathematica aimed to encourage greater collaboration across local, state, and national data systems by promoting the use of common metrics and principles to understand how students are progressing from pre-K to the workforce, assess and address inequities, and better support their success. The Education-to-Workforce Indicator Framework (E-W Framework) helps state and local leaders, community organizations, advocates, researchers, and funders collect and use data equitably to advance educational and economic opportunities for all. This website provides an interactive platform for users to explore and apply the framework.

The Third Annual Anthem Awards: Humanitarian Action & Services Bronze Winner - The Annie E. Casey Foundation

Working with the Annie E. Casey Foundation, we refreshed their site to improve context-setting and make the data more accessible to meet Casey’s mission, contemporize the look and feel of Data Center to match Casey’s new brand guidelines, and make Data Center feel more connected to the primary Casey website. The KIDS COUNT Data Center offers rich data and insights about children, youth, and families. By providing this information, Casey seeks to enrich local, state, and national discussions concerning ways to secure better futures for all children — and to raise the visibility of children's issues through a nonpartisan, evidence-based lens.

“The Anthem Awards were born out of the desire to amplify and celebrate the voices that are creating sustainable change and to inspire others to take action. In a year where so much is at stake, it is incredibly important to recognize impact work and celebrate the progress happening globally. Congratulations to all of this year’s Winners.”
