As part of the Mandel School’s Anti-Racism Workshop Series: Facing and Confronting Racism in Social Work Research, Teaching and Practice, the campus community is invited to “Examining Racism Using Data Algorithms” Friday, Dec. 11 at 11 a.m. (EST).
As an example of a possible outcome of addressing systemic racism in research, Francisca García-Cobián Richter, a research assistant professor working with big data, is examining the use of algorithms. She is currently developing a data science course that will address these issues. Richter will share her expertise in this area with our community in a workshop.
In conjunction with the national dialogue on the need to address racism in the United States and in acknowledgement of the role that social workers, social work researchers and educators play in addressing racism in America, the Mandel School is holding a series of workshops to focus on facing and confronting racism in social work.
Ideas for future workshops and presenters are welcome, as this is an evolving process that will adapt to the needs of the participants. Contact Nancy Rolock at firstname.lastname@example.org for questions and suggestions.
