A toolkit for centering racial equity throughout data integration

This resource is a toolkit about how to address racial equity in data practice and data integration by including community voices and power sharing at every stage of design, use, and implementation. The resource calls for a deliberate effort to address structural racism, institutional racism, and unrecognized bias in using, sharing, and integrating administrative data. It outlines how to embed questions of racial equity throughout the data life cycle in: planning; data collection; data access; algorithms/use of algorithms/use of statistical tools; data analysis; reporting; and dissemination. Practical information, infographics, suggestions and activities are provided to support collaborative participatory data use.
