While information can lift voices that are often silenced and lead to
decisions that are inclusive, too often the narratives that are told
further marginalize communities and people. Who controls data, how it
is used or ignored, can have significant short and long-term
consequences on the participation and inclusion of various
communities. This panel of human rights and digital communications experts will aim to unpack why it is critical that data be available
and interpreted by those who are most directly affected by its
potential and various implications and how this data can be used to
push for systemic change.
