Data analytical methods are wonderful tools for policy practitioners to gain a rigorous understanding of the world we live in. These methods however bring new ethical questions to those who accumulate and analyze the data: questions around privacy, representation, bias and good faith, responsibility to interested and affected populations, and fairness. Mentors will discuss how to approach data collection and analysis with the same rigor in their ethics as in the data methods. The event will feature;
