The Northeast Hub Steering Committee advances the mission of the Northeast Big Data Innovation Hub and acts as an oversight board. We are currently accepting nominations for new members to be considered for our Steering Committee. We welcome nominations and self-nominations from academic and nonprofit professionals, researchers, and professors based at institutions in the Northeast region. As part of our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, we strongly encourage nominations and self-nominations from members of Minority Serving Institutions (MSIs) and minority constituencies. Please fill out this form to submit a nomination by June 30, 2021.
The mission of the Northeast Big Data Hub is to build and strengthen partnerships. Great partnerships cannot rest on a foundation of inequality; they must work to advance equity for all partners, of all backgrounds. That’s why building a diverse, equitable, and inclusive community is central to the work of the Hub. The Northeast Big Data Hub is committed to advancing equity for those who have been underserved in the data science field, including Black and Hispanic people.
As a mode of representation, data holds great power in individual and institutional decision-making. It both reveals disparities and needs within our communities and provides a path forward toward innovation and change. As a community of data science practitioners, we are committed to building diversity, equity, and inclusion in all aspects of our work, always mindful that we leverage the power of data responsibly and accessibly. Our focus on Responsible Data Science serves as a foundation for enabling data science that is secure, private, and ethical.
We realize our commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion through mutual collaboration, proactive outreach, and inclusivity by design. Our goal every day is to do better than we have done before.
