This is the May meeting of Connecticut's Equity and Ethics Community of Practice. It is open to anyone who works is data that is interested in this topic.
Join the Equity in Data Community of Practice as they delve more deeply into how we collect demographic data.
For the May session, participants will be discussing demographic data collection in preparation for the June session with Jasmine Laroche (Program Association, Evaluation and Learning at the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Philanthropies) who will present and facilitate a discussion based on the report, More Than Numbers: A Guide Toward Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) in Data Collection.
Demographic data collection (items about people's characteristics - their race and ethnicity, age, income, etc.) offers great promise. It allows us the chance to disaggregate data to learn whether different groups are benefiting more than others.
Yet it also offers the opportunity to harm and make groups more invisible than they already feel.
During this interactive discussion, participants will be talking about some of the successes and challenges we have experienced while using or collecting demographic data in our work.
