Data Community #DataWeekender Europe 2020: Ethics in Modern Data

On Saturday May 2 Christine and I presented at the Data Community #DataWeekender Europe 2020 online conference, an all-online free virtual popup Microsoft Data Conference hosted by various professionals from around Europe. We're looking forward to presenting to the international audience of hundreds of data professionals, and are grateful for the final time slot that put us in mid-morning Saturday, Central US Time!

Our joint presentation is one of our favorites to present, Ethics in Modern Data. We'll be presenting in Teams Track 6 at 9:45AM US Central Time (-05:00).

This is an important topic that lives at the crossroads of both of our careers, my wife's career in organizational psychology and human resources, my career in data, and our joint passion for history and civil rights. It's important to understand that when dealing with bias, outcomes matter, intentions don't. While many of our examples come from the historical context of the United States, not all, and we have added addition context to an international audience.
