Introduce Yourself!

Hey there @Kimberly and @meckman! Welcome to the forum. I’m really happy to see you.

@meckman, I am very very interesting in deepening our data equity work in areas that involve natural and biological science like the work that you’re doing. Please keep us updated on how it’s going and what tools might be useful to you!

@Kimberly - what important work you’re doing! I’m so glad to hear that Talking Data Equity on Fridays is useful to you. If you every have a specific topic or guest you’d like to see, just let me know. We’re always looking for new suggestions :slight_smile:

Carol Rozumalski, Seattle, WA. I am a Strategic Operations Advisor with the City of Seattle Department of Neighborhoods, and I am eager to discover ways to use data equity principles for enhancing how our department defines and reports successful outcomes with our community partners.

Hi, my name is Valentina, I’m a data analyst for NYC DOHMH. Here to learn more about data equity, after being very impressed with Heather’s workshop provided by the agency. I’ve worked with secondary data for most of my career, and looking forward to learning tools to ensure that my work with data is bias free.

Jo Johnson; Sandpoint, ID; State Public Health, Oregon Health Authority; Data Equity Program Manager. I am grateful for these classes and the direction and support to work through the application of the data feminism, data justice, and data equity principles. I am looking for ways and questions to ask in the operationalization of this, especially in the context of state government.

Hi everyone, my name is Andy Cho (they/them pronouns). I live and work in Portland, OR at Multnomah County Health Department’s Harm Reduction Program as a community health worker. I strive to make sure that our program is providing the highest level of service to the people of this county, specifically people who are using drugs.

I was working as a software quality assurance analyst for years before I started in this type of work. Part of my current job responsibilities in my role include being a liaison to the people who access our services, fellow front-line staff, developer team and data analyst to maintain/update our proprietary web-based software data collection system. I’m still very new to all things data, so I’m looking forward to learning from all of you!
