WIRED World We will also hear a new term, “disaggregated data” – in other words, data that has been divided into detailed sub-categories – which will allow us to understand who exactly Covid-19 has killed, who was denied or benefited from relief packages and who was completely forgotten. Disaggregated data will also allow for the identification of the nuances in the characteristics and outcomes that define vulnerability. We will require that data be collected and reported with the purpose of being separated into its component parts. This will give us the accountability we need to measure progress in the wellbeing of vulnerable populations. by Rhonda Vonshay Sharpe, President, WISER

Show Me The Data, But Disaggregate It First

Instead, all federally funded research should report data by the intersection of ethnicity, race, gender, class, and other characteristics. That means not simply looking at the numbers based on age or race or gender, but looking at all of those factors at once.

An intersectional approach takes into consideration the fact that people often fit into more than one of these categories. When data are disaggregated this way, the results can inform policies to increase health and economic outcomes of vulnerable groups.

Mosaic High-technology industries generate tremendous innovation and wealth, yet Black people make up a small share of technical professionals, executives, founders, board members and venture capitalists. The result is missed opportunity for Black professionals and employees to participate in the economic gains created by these industries, and a missed opportunity for tech companies to incorporate their skills, talents, and perspectives. In this session, speakers will discuss the reasons that these barriers persist and highlight efforts to create opportunities for Black people in STEM education fields and in high-tech industry employment, management and ownership.

Founded on International Woman’s Day 2016, the Women’s Institute for Science, Equity and Race (WISER) is a nonprofit, nonpartisan 501(c)3 research institute. WISER’s mission is to expand women-focused policy research to include the social, economic, cultural, and political well-being of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American, and Multiracial women.

WISER believes a microanalysis approach, the disaggregation of data by race, ethnicity and gender, will draw different conclusions for each group, as opposed to the broad umbrella of “women of color.” Using the term “women of color“assumes that Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American and Multiracial women are a homogeneous group and results in ineffective policies that do not address the needs of the most vulnerable.

WISER advocates for a society where policy research is inclusive of the needs of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American, and Multiracial women. We believe the well-being of Asian, Black, Hispanic, Indigenous American, and Multiracial women is vital for economic progress.
