On April 16, 2021, Dr. Srivi will speak at the QSIDE Data4Justice Conference. The Institute for the Quantitative Study of Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity, Inc. (QSIDE) will host the conference from 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET (9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. CT) over Zoom. The conference will celebrate quantitative research on issues of diversity and equity.
The inaugural Data4Justice Conference is a virtual event for educators, activists, and legislators to understand the ways in which true social justice is collaboratively possible. With its broadly accessible speeches happening all-day, the conference is designed for a general audience to learn more about how data, research, and activism intersect to make profound change.
Dr. Srivi Ramasubramanian will give a formal presentation followed by Q&A with the audience. QSIDE Senior Fellows Haley Taylor and Isabel Fields are assisting Dr. Chad Topaz, Director of QSIDE, to organize this conference.
"We are incredibly excited that [Dr. Srivi has] agreed to be a speaker in the 2020 QSIDE Data4Justice Conference," said Taylor.
Co-founded in 2019 by Chad Topaz and Jude Higdon, QSIDE is a nonprofit that uses quantitative methodologies to examine social justice issues. Often partnering with grassroots activist organizations, the research network has a mission to promote inclusion, diversity, and equity.
The opening plenary will be American political commentator Heather Charisse McGhee. Dr. Srivi Ramasubramanian will join Dr. Allissa V. Richardson from the USC Annenberg School of Communication and Dr. Diana Greenwald from the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum. The three experts are grouped as a segment of the conference focusing on inclusion in arts and media.
