Compassionate Data Collection: Promoting Equity in Evaluation

In this webinar, we are joined by Dr. Deb Chiodo from CAMH and Daniel Murcia Monroy from Casey House, to talk to us about why we should be collecting demographic data and how this data can be effectively used to promote equity in supporting students with their mental health. This webinar will be particularly useful for post-secondary staff working in assessment or leadership.
