Advancing Data Equity across Human Services Systems
While data has the potential to highlight racial disproportionality and support positive community outcomes, data practices also have the power to reinforce bias and systemic inequalities across our human services systems. The American Public Human Services Association (APHSA) will host a webinar on June 1, 2023 from 1:00 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. ET which will bring together leaders at the intersection of data and Equity, Diversity, Inclusion and Belonging (EDIB) to discuss some of the ways in which data equity is redefining how data is collected, analyzed, and shared to maximize the public good. Panelists will focus on the partnerships and collaborations that are essential to designing and implementing more equitable data frameworks, as well as the ways to center community voice in the generation of data-driven solutions.
