UBC and Office of the Human Rights Commissioner collaborate on webinar
Thursday, January 14, 2021
4 to 5:30 p.m. PST
Join the Office of the Provost and Vice-President Academic, UBC Okanagan and the Office of the Vice-President, Health for a webinar on January 14, 2021, that will spark conversation between UBC and BC’s Office of the Human Rights Commissioner on the collection of disaggregated data to advance human rights.
By making systemic racism and inequalities in our society visible, disaggregated data can lead to positive change. The same data, used or collected poorly, can reinforce stigmatization of communities, leading to individual and community harm.
The webinar will be the start of an ongoing conversation about how this report informs the responsibilities of researchers and UBC as an institution.
