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.

““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
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!
