The College of Public Service and Urban Affairs at Tennessee State University is hosting the 14th Annual Social Equity Leadership Conference June 3-5, 2015 in Nashville, TN. The theme of this year’s conference is, ““Leveraging Technology and Data to Promote Social Equity.” The purpose of the conference is to offer participants the opportunity to deliberate and discuss the changing world of technology and its relationship to data in the area of equitable social change. Participants will discuss modern trends in the technological application of data collection, analysis, policy implementation, service delivery and community change. This discussion is ultimately aimed at taking concrete action as it relates to the use of technology to drive policy and programmatic solutions in the area of social equity.
Established by the Standing Panel on Social Equity at the National Academy of Public Administration (NAPA), the annual Social Equity Leadership Conferences are focused on advancing knowledge and understanding of applied and theoretical research towards the promotion of social equity in governance. The Standing Panel on Social Equity in Governance (a committee of NAPA) focuses on issues of fairness, justice, and equity in a variety of public contexts, including, but not limited to: education, policing, welfare, housing, and transportation.
