Sara Fine Lecture Series: "Data Action: Using Data for a Public Good"

Join the Sara Fine Institute on February 5, 2021 at 1 p.m. for a virtual talk by Sarah Williams (MIT) titled "Data Action: Using Data for a Public Good."

Registration for this event is required. A Zoom link and login information will be emailed once you register for the lecture.

Abstract: Using illustrations from her own work and that of others, Williams will explain how we can use data as a tool for empowerment rather than oppression, something Williams calls "Data Action", which is also the title of her recent book. Data Action seeks to provide guidance for using data toward the benefit of society, learning from the ways we have used data unethically in the past and illustrating ways we can use it more ethically and creatively in the future. Some themes emerge for working with data for the public good, and these themes help to establish the principles for Data Action, the author's method for approaching data, which will be highlighted in the talk.
