In the wake of the murders of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor and Ahmaud Arbery in 2020, among other (on-going) acts of violence against African Americans in the U.S., members of IASSIST felt compelled to gather materials that can help all of us better recognize, acknowledge and combat inherent racial bias. These members formed this group and compiled the resources linked here.
We aim to help build anti-racism into the process of working with data.
We are currently working on these Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) Data topics
