Using Accessible Data to Advance Racial Equity in Your Community
March 11 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree
Join us for a session to learn more about accessing free, publicly-available data to support equitable investments in your community. During this session you will learn from Milena Silva. Milena is a recent graduate from Carleton College with degrees in Math and Political Science. She is interested in the intersections between data analysis and social justice. She is planning to start her PhD in Statistics in the fall. The session will include:
- An overview of free, publicly-available data sources you can utilize to examine community and population-level data;
- A demonstration on how to access data and build a data set to disaggregate data points by race;
- A review of a statewide data profile that was built from these data sources; and
- An exploration of how you can build your own community profile or work with Milena or others to create a similar data set to support:
- Your own internal decision making;
- Your board and staff education and awareness; and/or
- Community education and awareness.
We’ve heard from members that many are unsure where to start with accessing and analyzing data. This workshop is for you – we hope you will join us!
