At the heart of this lesson is data literacy—to empower students to assess an environment, challenge institutional biases and barriers, and create transformational change for a better world that supports all communities and ways of thinking. Students will explore public data to research women, people of color, and intersectional workers in the technology industry. Students will be tasked with identifying inequalities, inequities, and injustices, based on the data they research around recruitment, hiring, wages, education, geographical location, and other factors they connect and identify as relevant to the issue. Data literacy is an essential skill for navigating our data rich society, and this lesson will require students to do research, to read a literature review filled with technical information, to make inferences and support these  inferences with data findings, and represent the data in written and graphical/visual forms.
