2024 Data + Equity Summit

Join us for AISP’s inaugural day of speakers and workshops on June 6th

Are you looking for more ways to bring community voice and conversations about equity to your data sharing effort?

On June 6, join AISP and practitioners from across the country for a Data + Equity Summit in Philadelphia, PA. Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) is an initiative at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Social Policy and Practice. We work with state and local governments and their partners to collaboratively use data to improve lives. Learn more about our work here

This no-cost, day-long event will begin with a keynote from Tawana Petty. Petty is a mother, social justice organizer, poet, author, and facilitator. Her work focuses on racial justice, equity, privacy, and consent. She is a 2023-2025 Just Tech Fellow with the Social Science Research Council, a 2024 National LIO Yearlong Fellow with the Rockwood Leadership Institute, and she serves on the CSforDetroit Steering Committee. Petty has helped shape AISP’s work on data and equity as an original member of the Toolkit for Centering Racial Equity workgroup and as part of the revision workgroup currently underway.

The Data + Equity Summit will take place at The Study, University City, in Philadelphia, PA from 9am – 4:30pm on Thursday, June 6, 2024. See a full schedule of events below!
