Making Data Sexy
Friday, July 22 | 1:45 PM – 3:00 PM
The Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander (AANHPI) community includes over 48 distinct ethnic groups and over 300 languages. Disaggregating AANHPI data is vital to ensuring that all students are counted and their needs adequately assessed. This workshop seeks to address this issue by providing participants the tools and skills necessary to advocate for data disaggregation on the state and national levels. Through a panel presentation and discussion, participants will learn about the necessary background information on data disaggregation, organizing strategies, and important skills to advocate for data disaggregation.
