A fireside chat format will be used to discuss complex diversity topics in detail with selected data specialists and to provide the opportunity for the audience to get to know the presenters better. In a comfortable atmosphere the speakers will discuss the following diversity in data topics: accessibility, Indigenous engagement, and inclusion of minority populations in surveys.
As the City of Philadelphia continues to make history as a progressive leader for our LGBTQ+ communities, and as anti-LGB and trans legislation has reached an all-time high in recent years, the city is proud to use data to inform its policies and practices in creating more inclusive, supportive, and safer spaces for LGBTQ+ people.
