FOUNDATIONS OF DATA EQUITY
Data is not neutral. And all too often, through the way it is collected, analyzed, interpreted, and distributed, data can exacerbate biases and stereotypes. In partnership with United Way, We All Count shares with us their Foundations of Data Equity Course!
To protect underserved communities, equity must be at the forefront in every stage of the data life cycle. This workshop will push you to consider the ways we unintentionally contribute to inequity in our projects and give you the tools and experience to embed equity in every aspect of your data.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This program is designed for anyone who uses data to make decisions, craft solutions, or build models.
This course will be especially helpful for community impact leaders working with community data and/or making funding decisions.
