Data Day 2021 - Slaying Dragons with Data (Dr. Katie Pritchard)
Dr. Katie Pritchard provides an update on Data You Can Use. Data You Can Use is a diverse group of local professionals who help people access data and make it useful in improving community conditions. We help connect people who need data to people who have data and assist in accessing, analyzing, translating, interpreting and presenting data. We can help you ask the right questions to get the right data, put it into a local context, present it visually and put it to work in addressing issues important to you. We subscribe to the principles of the Urban Institute’s National Neighborhood Indicators Partnership and work to democratize data by building local capacity, sharing best practices and helping users sort through the data to surface, explain and address issues of concern. We know this takes technical expertise, knowledge of local context, the ability to convene and collaborate with multiple stakeholders and trust.
Data Day 2021 - Keynote Speaker (Dr. Emmanuel Letouzé)
Data as a Language, Lens and Lever for Social Change. Fostering 'data literacy’ is widely considered a priority of the “Data Revolution” that started about a decade ago. But what exactly is meant by and expected from ‘data literacy’? The COVID pandemic exposed and exacerbated preexisting fault lines and accelerated digitalization across the world. Data can play a powerful transformative role if it is used as a lens on the world, as a shared language, and as a lever for social change. This vision requires considering and promoting data literacy beyond a skills-based approach, as literacy in the age of data. Learn more about data literacy in Dr. Letouze's white paper from 2015, "Beyond Data Literacy: Reinventing Community Engagement and Empowerment in the Age of Data". - Dr. Emmanuel Letouzé is a Marie Curie Fellow at the Universitat Pompeu Fabra in Barcelona and the founder of Data-Pop Alliance, a not-for-profit organization on Big Data, AI and human development created in 2013 by the MIT Media Lab, Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI), and the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), where he is a Connection Science Fellow, a Visiting Scientist, and a Research Associate, respectively. He previously worked as a Development Economist for UNDP in New York (2006-10) on poverty, post-conflict recovery and migration, and in Vietnam for the French government as a Technical Assistant in public finance and official statistics (2000-04). He holds a BA in Political Science and an MA in Applied Economics-Economic Demography from Sciences Po Paris, an MA in International Affairs-Economic Development from Columbia University, where he was a Fulbright Fellow, and a PhD in Demography from the University of California, Berkeley (2016). He’s also a political cartoonist (‘Manu’) for various publications and media.
