Boston Business Journal Features OpEd Highlighting Impact MetroWest Data & Mass Bay Partnership

The Boston Business Journal featured an Editorial | Viewpoint discussing how data can help drive racial equity in MetroWest. Read the BBJ editorial here.

Foundation for MetroWest Executive Director Jay Kim and MassBay Community College President David Podell share how the two organizations are partnering on the Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) Program.

This is one example of partnerships that have been driven by data and insights gleaned from Impact MetroWest. “When data and strategy go hand-in-hand, we find solutions to problems we hadn’t seen before.”

“Data are too often left to stand alone, making inequities feel insurmountable. By turning data into action with programs such as this with MassBay, Impact MetroWest makes a difference in the everyday lives of the people who call the MetroWest home and will continue to positively impact them for years to come.”
