Free Webinar: Accounting for Implicit Bias in Predictive Analytics

June 6 | 3–4 PM (EST)

In a new white paper, Kirwan Institute Research Associate Kelly Capatosto turns the lens toward predictive analytics in child welfare, the potential hazards of applying these models without accounting for implicit racial bias and other cognitive and structural barriers that face communities of color, and how those hazards can be navigated.

Join Daniel Heimpel, Executive Director of Fostering Media Connections, in conversation with Kelly Capatosto about the white paper findings, and ways that the child welfare community can safeguard against bias in applying predictive analytics to protect children.
