You’re invited to our Pathways to a Just Digital Future virtual event! We hope you’ll join us on March 31 from 1 – 2 pm ET for a chance to connect as a community, discuss the problem of digital inequality, and identify opportunities for change. The event will focus AI and bias, designing tech for all audiences, and diversity of tech teams, and is part of the “Summit Gathering” stage of our Just Digital Future project. Keep exploring!

All data science is political. It's impossible to take a dataset and analyze it in a 'perfectly objective' way. Because you're always going to be putting on there some type of value judgment about what the dataset represents.
