Doing What’s Right: Exploring a Framework for Data Ethics
Abstract: While embracing the promise of technological advances and data-driven decision making, organizations must also acknowledge and address the potential harms to individuals, populations, and society as a whole in our data collection, sharing, use, and retention practices. In this webinar, the author of the recently published book We The People: A Playbook for Data Ethics in a Democratic Society presents a framework for organizations to use in developing and assessing ethical data practices. Hint: it involves much more than data privacy!
