Informing Change recently partnered with the David and Lucile Packard Foundation on a Data Ethics Guidebook and Toolkit, offering guidance and tools to evaluation staff and practitioners for tackling issues from design to use and distribution, and stories from the field illustrating real-world dilemmas. This online workshop will introduce attendees to the tools (including alternatives to Institutional Review Boards, guidelines for ethical collection of demographic data, and an ethical thinking framework) and invite them to discuss issues that often arise in evaluation and research.
