Learn something big in just an hour a week!

Join us for one hour a week, for eight weeks, as we take you through a full case study of the We All Count Data Equity Framework. One of the best ways to understand how the Framework can be implemented is by going through an entire data project top to bottom.

How it works:

Each week, we will watch how our typical data project (based on a synthesis of our real data projects, combined for anonymity) embeds meaningful and transformative data equity practices. We’ll also track its progress in a parallel universe where it doesn’t implement the Data Equity Framework, so we can see its missteps and get a better idea of how we can be different in our work. 

In each hour-long live session, we’ll spend about half of the time detailing a specific phase from our case study, and then turn it over to a collaborative discussion about what else they could have done, and how this relates to our work. 

Follow a data project as they:

  • Structure and receive their funding.

  • Identify their key goals and motivations.

  • Design their project and select methodologies.

  • Collect their data.

  • Perform analysis.

  • Interpret their results.

  • Report their project.

Praise for We All Count Data Equity Trainings:

““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."”

Adrienne Stein

““The data equity workshop was full of lightbulb moments. It was, by far, the training that has helped me the most in my day to day use of data. Her tools have changed the way our team uses data.””

Kate L, Children's Aid Society

““The Foundations workshop gave us tools we can use to implement our goal of equity in our investment portfolio. As a social investment funder trying to bridge the VC world and the nonprofit world, the framework helped me wrap my head around what’s doable.” ”

Gavin K, Public/Private Investments

Who is this for?

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. 

This is a uniquely structured workshop ideal for people who want to spend a small amount of time each week getting a highly grounded, real-world understanding of the Data Equity Framework in action. 

This workshop series is ideal for anyone who has taken our Foundations of Data Equity program. It’s the perfect next step to cement your grasp on the concepts you’ve just learned, but with entirely new and different examples, challenges and contexts. If you think this workshop might be a good fit for you, but you haven’t taken our Foundations course please contact us and we’ll either get you up to speed for this course or into a course that’s an even better fit!

Workshop Format

The workshop will be delivered in a combination of mediums in order to maximize student time investment and to support a variety of learning styles.

  • Live & Interactive

    The core of the content will be delivered in live Zoom sessions with Heather Krause using video, audio, and graphic content and including activities that attendees can participate in if desired.

  • Participatory & Community Building

    This workshop is participatory. Participants will be able to ask questions, both to Heather Krause, and to each other. Additionally, everyone who completes this We All Count training gets access to the WAC Graduate Network, where they can collaborate and engage with everyone who has taken a training with us before.

  • Online Learning Platform

    The live sessions are supported by the content on our online learning platform, where participants will have access to the recordings of the live sessions, all slides and supporting materials used in the live sessions, and a wealth of supplementary information, resources and tools.
