The Critical Issues in Data and Research (CIDAR) discussion group was created to bring people who work with data or do research together to discuss topics relating to justice, equity, and inclusion in these realms. Each meeting, we'll focus on a case study or theory to discuss what we can learn from these examples and how we can apply more ethical practices to our work.
The group meets virtually every other month on the second Friday at 11am. Register to receive the link to the Bluejeans meeting. Use the Bluejeans desktop app for automated captions.

Join us for the first ever CIDAR discussion group! This group will meet every other month on the second Friday to discuss issues related to justice, equity, and inclusion in data. For our first meeting, we'll be discussing the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance and data sovereignty. No reading is required but checking out the CARE Principles ahead of time is encouraged.

Topic to be determined
Behavior that will not be tolerated
If you are not behaving according to this code of conduct, you will be removed from the discussion and not allowed to return. CIDAR meetings will have a zero tolerance policy for unacceptable behavior and believe those who report it.
This code of conduct is meant to create a space where all people feel safe to participate, introduce new ideas and inspire others. We hope to be a welcoming space for people of all races and ethnic backgrounds, gender identities and expressions, sexual orientations, physical abilities, physical appearances, socioeconomic backgrounds, nationalities, ages, religions, and beliefs and a place where everyone feels free to speak, be included in conversations, and be heard. We strive to provide an environment that’s free from all forms of harassment, including microaggressions.
For concerns relating to CIDAR code of conduct, please contact Margaret Janz at firstname.lastname@example.org.
