This workshop will serve as an introduction to recent trends and practices related to using GIS for equity and social justice (ESJ). We will explore critical race theory (CRT) and trends in critical race spatial analysis. We will review recent literature and academic programs around the topic of GIS for ESJ. Most importantly we will outline best practices for GIS professionals in doing GIS for ESJ work. This includes creating a data/mapping/application support framework both for their own work and to support the work of non-GIS professionals.
GIS professionals interested in ESJ work.
GIS professionals are guided by the GIS Code of Ethics , which exist to “help professionals make appropriate and ethical choices,” to consider the impact of their work on society. For hundreds of years mapping has sometimes been a tool for creating and preserving inequity. During the past 25 years there have been some uses of GIS for issues related to equity or social justice.
ESJ practitioners interested in using GIS for ESJ planning, analysis and program monitoring.
ESJ practitioners who are not GIS professionals will become the largest community doing ESJ work with GIS. These non-GIS professionals include those who work for agencies, non-profits, and NGO’s with an ESJ mission, as well as government policy professionals who want to use GIS to support an ESJ lens for developing upstream agency policies.
Agenda and Topics Covered
Familiarity with GIS tools, such as ArcGIS or QGIS, and business analytics tools, such as Tableau, Power BI, or Insights.
