DRIVE 2023

March 28-29, 2023  |  Chicago, Illinois

Join us on Day 1 of The Council of Advancement and Support of Education’s Drive Conference for our session, “How Do We Lead on Data Equity” with PTKO Chief Analytics Officer, Stefan Byrd-Krueger, Robyn Doughty from UC Berkeley and Ron Goines from Movement for Black Lives.

Our session will dive into how Big Data has become a ubiquitous and somewhat meaningless term gradually but has played a role in making us continue to think about the amount and types of data we collect. As society continues to work on building fair and equitable systems our sector also continues to strive toward creating practices grounded in equity. Data collection, storage, management, and manipulation need to be addressed through the lens of equity, community representation/protection, and accessibility. In this panel discussion, we are going to explore ideas about what’s holding the non-profit sector back from building and sharing data equity practices besides staff and budget.

Stefan Byrd-Krueger’s journey to professional nirvana began with his passion for the arts as a sculptural welder, developed through his university training in policy analysis and years of experience in grassroots education and advocacy among think tanks, then blossomed as he took his love of elegant design and organizational excellence into the private sector as a digital marketing consultant. This blend of creative process, recognition of the human element of organizational success, and love of the technical discipline defines his working style.
