Date:

Location: 

Library Commons (Ground Floor), Harvard Kennedy School

donutData & Donuts is back! Join us for learning and data-centric discussion. This is a bi-monthly gathering in collaboration with digital HKS and HKS Library & Knowledge Services. Last semester we talked about data collection, social network theory, data visualization, and algorithmic bias. This semester we'll be learning how to draft unbiased research questions, discuss the importance of data feminism, develop (or perhaps fine tune) our Tableau skills, learn about data for storytelling and policymaking - and more.

On Friday, February 1, 2019 we'll be joined by:
