THE INTERSECTION OF RACIAL EQUITY AND TIME-SERIES METHODS CONFERENCE

In 2021 we were awarded a grant from the Spencer Foundation to create a novel training opportunity at the intersection of racial equity and time-series methods. The mission of the convening is to leverage a methodological framework, allowing researchers and practitioners to address longstanding questions of racial equity.

The 2022 conference includes 30 in-person participants and over 100 virtual attendees. Thanks to the support of the Spencer Foundation we are able to offset the cost of conference travel for those who attend in-person. Applicants are accepted using only our online application form. Applicant submission closes on June 30th at 11:59 PM ET. Please note that we can accepted only a small number of in-person attendees as physical space is limited.

The conference will be videotaped and archived for later use. The archives will also contain the slides used during the conference.
