Building Bridges: Leveraging the Resources of Universities for Social Justice

This is a past event.

Guest presenter: Emmaline Rial (they/them), MPA Candidate, University of Pittsburgh

Students have a deep desire to align their education and skills meaningfully to the struggle for social justice they observe or experience in the real world. Organizations have a need for the skills that the students want to offer, however, infrastructure is needed to connect the two. For example, students may need help translating issues on the ground into the language of their discipline, designing projects that fit into their academic schedule, or finding peers and mentors to work together with. This talk will present one example of such infrastructure at CAASI Grief to Action and show how it was leveraged to create the Allegheny County Policing Project.

This talk is part of Love Data Week—see the entire lineup at lovedatapgh.io

Love Data Week is an annual time for libraries to showcase, discuss, and celebrate working with data.

2023 is the Year of Emotional Well-Being at Pitt, and this year we want to emphasize healthy learning and professional development: it’s not about being the perfect coder or making the perfect plot, but about starting where you are, and doing what you can with what you have.

In that spirit, we’re offering accessible workshops, artistic expressions with data, informative talks, and social mixers about data work.

When is Love Data Week at Pitt? Well, International Love Data Week is always the week of Valentine’s Day, but our events at Pitt can’t all fit into one week! Our dates locally are February 9–17 & 23, 2023.
