Join Code for Greensboro at HQ Greensboro on August 23rd, from 5:00pm-7:30pm as the Community Foundation of Greater Greensboro, Cone Health, Healthy High Point, and other community partners come together to educate and engage the public on the Guilford County Community Indicators Project.
During the event, we’ll be exhibiting various examples of existing CIP dashboards and datasets including Mecklenburg County’s Quality of Life Explorer, the City of Greensboro's Open Gate City Data Program, Piedmont Health Counts, as well the early stages of Guilford County’s own Community Indicators Dashboard.
Our main talk will be from Tobin Bradley, a designer and developer for Mecklenberg County, creator of the Mecklenberg County Quality of Life Explorer, and recipient of the G. Herbert Stout Award for Visionary Use of GIS. We will also have presentations from Kathy Colville of Piedmont Health Counts, as well as Jason Marshall of the City of Greensboro, and Leonard Lawson of Code for Greensboro.
For the final part of the program, we’ll ask you to give your feedback about the information you think our community should collect and what data you would like to see included. This is an on-going project that continues to grow and gain community partners, so if you’re interested in collaborating and contributing, we’ll be happy tell you about the ways to get involved!

The UNCG Entrepreneurial Journeys Monthly Speaker Series
Sarah Doggett Evenson is creating effortlessly chic clothing as the founder and creative director of Marie Oliver. Sarah’s goal is to make women feel confident in her figure-flattering, draping designs. In late 2012, after years of curating her personal wardrobe and driven by her father’s frequent reminder to “find something you love and learn how to be successful doing it”, Sarah began working with her now husband, Peter, to develop what was a mere childhood dream into a reality… her middle name, “Marie”, and his middle name, “Oliver”. Today, while Sarah oversees all creative aspects of the brand, Peter is responsible for developing and implementing Marie Oliver’s growth strategy and managing day- to- day affairs. Spring 2015 marks the launch of Marie Oliver’s debut collection in specialty boutiques across the US and Ecommerce at www.marieoliver.com.
Marie Oliver is proudly headquartered in Greensboro, NC, where Sarah and Peter currently reside.
