The key to good data collection is not knowing everything but instead knowing what questions to ask in order to do ethical, thoughtful, and intentional data collection. What assumptions are we making? We will talk about what to consider not just methodologically but also contextually and historically while preparing for data collection. This workshop will include a presentation, time for individual and group reflection, and a short break!
Offered by our partner, Minnesota Council of Nonprofits.
About the Presenter

She has worked on projects at the local, state, national, and international levels. Her background is in human rights, survey research, community engagement, and both qualitative and quantitative research methods. In her work she focuses on community-centered and equitable evaluation and research practices, with an interest in community engagement in data collection and outreach. Kassira believes the term “with an equity lens” should sunset as our lens should always incorporate equity, access, and be trauma-informed.
