2:45 p.m.  |  Session 6C: Data Analysis – Evaluating your DEI strategy 

Speaker: Dr. Aynslie Hinds
Senior Research Associate at The University of Winnipeg


Session Summary:
Starting with a brief introduction of evaluation, this workshop will explain how proper data collection and evaluation can help us to understand if we are “moving the needle” with respect to DEI initiatives. Additionally, attendees will be provided with a framework, and a  7-step process for developing an evaluation plan for a DEI initiative. Within the 7-step process, we will focus on the “data”; distinguishing between indicators and outcomes, identifying potential sources of data and methods of data collection, as well as analyzing the data and disseminating the results. Attendees will also discuss considerations and potential challenges for implementing the evaluation plan, such as ethical issues and data governance. Lastly, you can expect to leave with useful resources and ask any questions you might have on evaluation and data.

Learning Objectives:  

  • Develop an understanding of why embedding evaluation into DEI initiatives is important
  • Learn more on how to develop and implement an evaluation plan for a DEI initiative
  • Leave with knowledge of where to find useful and relevant evaluation resources
