    Dear colleagues,
    The African Association of Universities (a University Association counting over 400 Universities across the African Continent), together with the University of Nottingham and the Ethical Data Initiative, are launching a campaign for the inclusion of Data Ethics in Data Science education on a global scale. Please join the webinar on 23rd May 2023 and support our Campaign for Data Ethics in Higher Education. 
    Details at https://ethicaldatainitiative.org/2023/05/12/data-ethics-policy-in-highe… 
    With hundreds of universities across the world already supporting our Campaign for Data Ethics in Higher Education, there is huge momentum building.
    The Ethical Data Initiative were delighted to be invited to partner with the African Institute for Capacity Development (AICAD)  to deliver Data Ethics training to over 50 data science faculty and PhD supervisors from its consortium of over 20 universities across Uganda, Tanzania and Kenya. The course took place from 2-15 May, 2023. The graduate studies supervisor course aimed not only to teach key fundamentals of Masters and PhD research supervision, but also to equip attendees with up-to-date and relevant information to address the challenges of supervising data science postgraduate courses in the modern age.

    If you are working towards, or planning on working towards, including Data Ethics in your university curriculum – or are planning on expanding your current offering – we would like to hear from you. Please contact ***@***.***
    Best wishes
