In this episode of The Black Experience in Austin, we will talk with Meme (mee-mee) Styles, the President and Founder of the award winning nonprofit MEASURE, a public education & advocacy organization that empowers people to use data to tell their own story.
Mrs. Styles created MEASURE in 2015 to build trust and measurable progress between people and institutions that serve them. MEASURE is building an ecosystem whereby Black and Brown-led nonprofits can receive data & evaluation support through MEASURE’s equity-focused tools for free. The organization is also responsible for mobilizing communities to address systemic disparities in health, economics, criminalization & education.
Data is not used effectively or collaboratively in the social justice ecosystem. When used strategically, data provides a common language upon which community members can meet and increase their knowledge about the causes and work together to create equitable change and increased awareness.
Mrs. Styles holds a Bachelor’s of Science in Communications, completing a Masters Of Public Administration at American Military University and received a certificate in Performance Measurement through George Washington University College of Professional Studies.
Following approximately 30 minutes, the audience will be invited to join in the conversation.
The episode will be recorded and posted on the Center for Nonprofit Studies Civil Society web page.
