Intersectionality series: introduction to ethical data collection.

Introduction to ethical data collection (recording)

Workforce and student data is critical to pinpointing barriers to equity, diversity and inclusion within an organisation - but this information can also be inherently sensitive.

In this episode of our Intersectionality series, we ask three experts in data ethics and research methods:

📊 What kind of data should we collect and why? 
✋  How can we maximise participation, minimise invasiveness and be respectful in our data collection? 
💬 How should we communicate the value proposition for disclosing personal data?
💭 What are the ethical and legal considerations around collecting diversity data?
