March 8, 2021 Striving for community-driven, anti-racist use of race, ethnicity and immigration data. Be part of a Peoples’ Panel to guide how race and ethnicity data are used in health research in Ontario. ICES recognizes the role of data in decolonizing health research and dismantling systemic racism. And as the focus on the need for data on race and ethnicity has increased in Ontario and more widely, the importance of collecting and using these data in a responsible manner is imperative. ICES, in collaboration with the Tamarack Institute and the Digital Justice Lab, is seeking input from a Peoples’ Panel that will consider how race and ethnicity data should be used for health data research in Ontario. An outcome of the panel will be a set of principles and recommendations that will contribute to the creation of a race and ethnicity data framework. ICES is seeking 30 to 60 diverse and representative individuals living in Ontario to join the panel. No experience in health, science or policy is needed. Panelists will meet weekly for five weeks starting on March 17, 2021. Meetings will be conducted virtually. Click here to sign up.
