Foundations of Data Equity:

Full-day Hands-on Workshop

Few people intentionally use data to make racist, or sexist, or unethical decisions. However, it’s very easy to do so accidentally. This has serious consequences for communities, policies, individuals, and organizations. From regular citizens, to decision makers, to CEOs, to tech workers, we all need a toolkit for embedding equity and ethics on our data products.

“I have been attending professional workshops for three decades and I have never been to one as engaging, fun, and immediately useful as Heather’s data equity workshop.”  Elaine Cabanes, Grants Director

What you’ll get:

A full day of stories and examples you can use to engage your team. Hands-on practice with real world case studies and checklists that can transform your work tomorrow and in ten years.

An opportunity to meet other people with similar aims, motivations, challenges, and stories. However we guarantee that our workshops are introvert-approved. You will not be mandated to share out loud or work in a group. Pinky swear.

By the end of the day you will be able to:

  • Use the We All Count seven step data equity framework to surfance bias, racism, homophobia, sexism, and more inyour data proucts.
  • Use the We All Count framework checklists to correct these issues and biases
  • Take practical steps to embed equity into your data products
  • Facilitate a conversation between your data team and your non-technical stakeholders about what it means to embed equity in your data products
  • Build a list of immediate actions you can take tomorrow as well as a long term plan for you and your team.

Who Should Attend?

If you make decisions based on data, work with stakeholders who make decisions based on data, build models with data, craft policies with data, or conduct evaluation with data, this workshop is for you.

No technical data skills are necessary.

Being curious and brave is an asset.

We’ll send you some optional readings prior to the workshop to get you even more excited.
