Do you have experience in working alongside community partners in data analysis or program evaluation? Do you want to connect with others who are using their skills for public good? National efforts from organizations such as DataKind, Data Science for Social Good, and Statistics without Borders have been expanding in recent years as more individuals recognize their potential to impact social change. Great things can happen when individuals are empowered to dedicate time, resources, and knowledge to the pursuit of public good. Whether we work in the foreground or the background, we can all contribute to improving the lives of those around us. Statistics in the Community (STATCOM), in collaboration with the Center for Education Design, Evaluation, and Research (CEDER) and the Community Technical Assistance Collaborative (CTAC), invite you to participate in the 2nd Annual Data for Public Good Symposium hosted by the Michigan Institute for Data Science (MIDAS). The symposium will take place on Tuesday, February 19, 2019 and will showcase the many research efforts and community-based partnerships at U-M that focus on improving humanity by using data for public good. If you are interested in attending, please register. CALL FOR ABSTRACTS We also invite you to share your expertise by submitting an abstract in one of the following areas: demonstration of a completed or ongoing community-university partnership; new methodology and tools that provide a service to humanity; real-world applications of using data for philanthropy or public good.
