Register here: ken.sc/d-d_ney
We hope that we’ll be able to invite a limited number of folks to attend in person. However, we may need to hold the event fully via Zoom depending on COVID protocols in the Spring 2022 semester. If we are able to host a hybrid event, in-person attendees will need to be Harvard ID holders, and follow all HKS COVID-19 policies. (A donut will be provided for each in-person attendee upon request!) All other attendees must join the event via Zoom. Speaker will be presenting via Zoom.
Jeremy Ney currently works at Google and is a recent graduate from MIT Sloan and Harvard Kennedy School (MBA/MPA). Jeremy's research uses maps and data visualization to highlight US inequality topics that tend to get left in the dark - inequality in life expectancy, food deserts, internet access, and more.
At this session of Data + Donuts, Jeremy will speak about his data visualization newsletter American Inequality, and the steps that changemakers can take to combat inequality in their communities.
