Free Webinar: “Introduction to Data Equity”

May 7, 2024

The Research Institute for Public Libraries (RIPL) is hosting a free webinar, “Introduction to Data Equity,” on Monday, May 13 at 1:00-2:30 (MDT).

This webinar will get you up to speed on the core issues facing the equitable and ethical use of quantitative data and provide you with a clear picture of the challenging landscape of turning complex human questions into numbers and then back into meaning.

Heather Krause (founder, We All Count) will use practical and concrete examples to explore:

  • the compelling case for why data projects are not objective (and why that’s a good thing!);
  • how the kinds of choice points we face when working with quantitative data give us the opportunity to embed equity in our work;
  • why we all need a cohesive system for identifying and addressing equity issues in data;
  • and an introduction to a practical, concrete approach to this crucial issue: The Data Equity Framework.
