iCount: Equity through Representation Symposium Explores the Power of Data Disaggregation in the Educational Equity Movement
September 14, 2015
Today marks the start of the iCount: Equity through Representation symposium, a convening of over 100 representatives from educational institutions and philanthropic and community organizations to bring attention to the need for data disaggregation to better represent and support the unique academic needs of a diverse Asian American and Pacific Islander (AAPI) student population in education.
This event, hosted by the White House Initiative on Asian American and Pacific Islanders in partnership with CARE, builds upon an inaugural 2013 symposium that highlighted the critical need for data disaggregation for AAPI students and provided the opportunity to share best practices for implementing systems at educational institutions. This second iCount convening will explore the progress made since the first symposium as well as opportunities for regional and local collaboration.
