Advanced Ethics Planning Series Session Three: Equity in Data and Evaluation - Learning Lab
Professional ethical standards and the values they are based on also apply to prevention data-related activities, including needs assessment and evaluation. As prevention professionals working with data, we have a critical role to pursue social change, particularly with and on behalf of vulnerable and oppressed individuals and groups of people. Through prevention needs assessment and evaluation activities, we seek to promote sensitivity to and knowledge about oppression and cultural and ethnic diversity. Prevention professionals strive to ensure access to needed information, services, and resources; equity; and meaningful participation in data-based decision-making activities for all people, while protecting those we serve.
Join us for a deep dive into how creating equity in needs assessment and evaluation activities is a fundamental ethical practice. We will provide a two-part discussion (overview and learning lab) on the role of cultural humility and social justice in prevention ethics as it pertains to data collection, analysis, and communication of findings.
