We invite you to a webinar on the CARE Principles for Indigenous Data Governance presented by Dr. Stephanie Russo Carroll and Talia Anderson from the University of Arizona.
The current shift to big data, open science, and open data does not fully engage with Indigenous Peoples rights and interests. Over the past five years, Indigenous data sovereignty has become a movement to increase both Indigenous access to Indigenous data and Indigenous leadership within data governance. Given that most Indigenous data are held by non-Indigenous governments, institutions, and agencies, increasing Indigenous Peoples participation in data governance activities is central to realizing Indigenous data sovereignty. How can organizations like CGIAR (1) support the creation of new institutional frameworks that center the terms of Indigenous communities around research and data partnerships and (2) enact policy and practice changes that protect and strengthen Indigenous Peoples’ relationships with their data, information, and knowledge?
