Part 2 of 3: How do you center racial equity throughout the data life cycle?
On September 22, 2020, All In and the Network for Public Health Law presented their three-part series on Racial Equity Throughout Data Integration. Data integration by local and state governments is undertaken for the public good: by breaking down program silos, practitioners and policy-makers can address the often interconnected needs of families and communities more effectively and holistically.
Yet, the way that cross-sector data are used can also reinforce legacies of racist policies and produce inequitable resource allocation, access, and outcomes.
Since 2019, Actionable Intelligence for Social Policy (AISP) has led a diverse workgroup of civic data stakeholders to co-create strategies and identify best practices to center racial equity throughout the administrative data reuse life cycle.
AISP’s new Toolkit for Centering Racial Equity Throughout Data Integration includes broad guidance on encouraged and discouraged data access and use and describes positive and problematic practices for centering racial equity across the six stages of the data life cycle.
