Data Science Studies Meeting – Tuesday, February 12 10:00 – 11:30 am @ Data Science Studio

Using Data to Advance Racial Justice

In February, we return to the question of diversity, asking what it takes to use data in service of diverse and marginalized populations. This month, we’re departing from our usual time slot and format for a special event hosted in conjunction with the UW Graduate School and the Information School. This year’s Mary Ann and John D. Mangels Public Lecturer, Samuel Sinyangwe, will join us in the Data Science Studio for an informal conversation led by iSchool Assistant Professor Anna Lauren Hoffman. Sinyangwe is a data scientist, policy analyst, social justice activist, and founder of the Mapping Police Violence project. Advance tickets for his public lecture on Feb 13th, “Using Data to Advance Racial Justice,” are sold out, so don’t miss our informal breakfast meeting as an opportunity to catch Sinyangwe while he’s on campus. 

Light breakfast, juice, coffee, and tea will be provided. 

Space is limited, so be sure to RSVP here (UW NetID required).
