Data for Democracy: The Role of Statistics in Policy, Civic Discourse and Decision-Making
Tuesday, Jan. 23, 5-7:30 p.m.
Signal Hill Campus
Join us for a discussion about the role of statistics in democracy, governance & sustainable communities with:
- Tony Labillois, Director General (Justice, Diversity & Population Statistics Branch) Statistics Canada
- Jamie Ward, Manager of the Regional Analytics Lab,
Harris Centre, Memorial University
Access to reliable and objective data and statistical information is critical to a healthy democracy – it’s essential to creating policies and programs that meet the needs of citizens, but it also provides citizens and organizations with the necessary information to understand their communities and critically assess the status quo.
All students welcome! Transportation (to and from St. John’s Campus) and light refreshments provided.
