Data ethics give emphasis to the appropriate use of data, from data collection to analysis to reporting. Data practitioners in the public service have important roles to play in upholding data ethics and maintaining trust. Moreover, the Data Strategy for the Federal Public Service calls for federal organizations to set clear expectations for responsible, transparent and ethical data stewardship to maintain the trust of Canadians.

This event will present strategies and approaches that data users may employ, both in Canada and abroad, to address ethical considerations. Participants will leave with the ability to describe many of the guiding principles for the ethical stewardship and use of data, and a better sense of how to share these best practices with peers.

This virtual event is the second event in the Data for Impact Series hosted by the GC Data Community.
