Do you have a passion for working with data?
Do you understand the indispensable work of community mental health agencies?
Are you a curious person, who knows a little about SQL and Power BI?
Our vision is to be the catalyst for change in the community mental health system. We hope to kindle the curiosity and creativity of emerging leaders, and create a new vocabulary of metrics that truly measure the quality and value of community services.
We believe every agency should have access to meaningful, understandable data, to support your organization and your mission.
Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging
We affirm that diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging are inherently valuable. We strive to create a space where every person's unique perspective can be heard, valued, and celebrated.
We illuminate data that can help identify barriers, gaps, strengths and opportunities. We understand that data is the beginning of a conversation, not the end.
We build data tools that are easy to use and rich in value. We provide our customers with high-quality services, consistently exceeding expectations.
We do our best to make sure the data tools we provide are accurate and complete. We are genuine, honest, and transparent when we make a mistake. We communicate clearly.
Since we are stewards of sensitive health care information, we value reliability and keeping to our word. We make promises we can keep, while maintaining our boundaries.
We believe in servant leadership, and we seek to empower people with that mindset. We care about the work we do, either because of a personal connection to the mental health system, or because we see people suffering in our community and we want to help.
We strive to be nimble. The health care system is constantly changing, and we want to stay flexible so we can take advantage of opportunities that align with our vision.
To attract and maintain high quality leaders in mental health, we also seek to build a community where they can experience learning and support. We care about developing our own skills, as well, so that we can bring that knowledge to our work.
