Data Day Keynote - Liz Dozier
From education to activism, Liz Dozier has spent her career working tirelessly to disrupt the culture of inequity that is often pervasive in urban neighborhoods. After serving as a teacher and principal in Chicago Public Schools, Dozier launched Chicago Beyond in 2016. An “impact investor”, Chicago Beyond has invested more than $30 million in local nonprofit organizations and community leaders to remove barriers to equity for youth, investing in everything from education, to youth safety, to health and wellness, and beyond.
In 2019, Chicago Beyond published ” Why Am I Always Being Researched? “, a guidebook for funders, researchers, and community organizations on how to deconstruct harmful power dynamics when researching communities. Chicago Beyond also started a speaker series on antiracism that has been joined by more than 100,000 individuals globally and has provided entry points for people with the desire to learn what it means to be antiracist.
