Inequity Speaker Series

With the Inequity Speaker Series, the Data Sciences Institute aims to feature leading researchers who are using diverse data and data-driven approaches to understanding social inequities and empowering communities. In doing so, we hope to facilitate the exchange of ideas, information, and knowledge among researchers, practitioners, and other professionals, and to enhance educational opportunities for students and trainees.

Inequities can arise from almost any aspect of society, including climate change, the implementation of machine learning, mobile technologies and genomics in health care and daily life, the design and spatial configuration of cities, as well as social and economic policy.  Drawing on the disciplinary strength inequity studies at U of T and recognizing that data-based technologies can potentially increase inequities, the Data Sciences Institute Thematic Program in Inequity encourages the generation of evidence (data and inference) and tools that enhance our understanding of inequity while supporting equitable social change.
