Get the experience and tools you need to overcome the equity challenges in your data.

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 decision-makers and grant-makers to researchers and strategists, we all need a toolkit for embedding equity and ethics on our data products.

You'll Learn By Doing

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

  • Use the seven-step Data Equity Framework to surface bias, racism, homophobia, sexism, and more in your data projects.

  • Use the Data Equity Framework checklists to correct these issues and biases.

  • Competently use a set of practical tools to increase equity in data analysis, communication, project design, data viz, and more.

  • Take practical steps to embed equity into data projects you consume or create.

  • 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 strategic long term plan for you and your team.

““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

“This course was so much more than I expected. It breaks down how to create and use an equity lens throughout the evaluation lifecycle, in clear language with practical examples. Can't recommend this highly enough. ”

Alissa Marchant, Senior Associate with Innovation Network

“The Data Equity workshop was one of the most worthwhile professional development activities I have ever undertaken. I plan to share this new way of looking at data with all my colleagues. ”

EPL, Director of Innovation

“You have explained the complexities of data equity and shared a very practical approach. I've rarely attended a webinar or training so thoughtfully well put together. It was a very good use of our time.”
