Co-Creation: A Principle of Shared Measurement to Align Systems and Communities towards Equity
This video highlights the co-creation principle, exploring how measurement can be co-created by communities to center their values, needs, priorities, and actions.
In January 2021, with funding from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, the American Institutes for Research published five Guiding Principles for Shared Measurement to help systems and communities align towards equitable outcomes. These principles help change measurement from a tool that reinforces the status quo to one that shifts power to communities. With the co-creation principle, systems and communities work together to make decisions to share power, incorporate diversity in perspectives, and share ownership of the data.
