For meaningful coverage on the relevance of data and computing in social justice work, we recommend two recent presentations:

Here at Emory, there are lots of data-related initiatives underway! The WHSC Data Science Initiative and the Emory Libraries have partnered to host an ongoing seminar series about Rigor and Reproducibility. Past sessions are recorded and shared, and we welcome suggestions for future topics in 2021.

The Department of Quantitative Theory & Methods will be launching two exciting opportunities for data-interested undergraduates this spring, including a collaborative hacking competition with industry and university partners themed around human trafficking, and a pilot with a local municipality and the QTM ambassador cohort. Stay tuned for more details!
