Business as usual is irresponsible and unacceptable when change is necessary. Acknowledging the disparate effects of policies on different groups, the provincial government and city council finally committed in June 2020 to start disaggregating race-based data to inform and support policy change. University members across Canada convened in early October 2020 for a set of national dialogues for racial reckoning in higher education, with a dedicated deconstruction of the ideological and logistical challenges to collecting race-based data.

Let’s keep up the momentum of these movements and conversations by joining Rachel Wuttunee (City of Vancouver Planner for Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls), Peter Marriott (City of Vancouver Planner for the Healthy City Strategy), and Dr. Laura Tate (independent consultant and educator on applied qualitative research for social change) for an important discussion on how race-based data collection and care can compel and carry action for change, moderated by Nadia Carvalho (City of Vancouver Planner for the Equity Framework and Vancouver Immigration Partnership) and hosted by Dr. Cissie Fu (Dean of the Faculty of Culture + Community at Emily Carr University).

To warm us up to practices of reciprocity, the panel invites us to take a moment before the event to read:

and take the time that each of us needs to stay with Reclaiming Power and Place: The Executive Summary of the Final Report of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (2019).

The series, Digital + Creative Knowledge Sharing: Data Management in Creative Research is supported by Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (Research Data Management Capacity Initiative), Emily Carr University Research + Industry Office, VP Academic and Provost Office, Emily Carr Library and First Nations Information Governance Centre.
