Data and analytics are powerful tools that can help us tackle society’s greatest challenges. The Joseph M. Katz Graduate School of Business, with support from the University’s Year of Data and Society, is leading a discussion addressing food insecurity and hunger in southwestern Pennsylvania, grounded in research and community engagement.
Join us Friday, April 8, 2022, from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. EST for the 2022 Katz Catalyst for Impact Symposium: Tackling Food Insecurity and Hunger through Ethical Analytics. Attendance, whether in-person or virtual, is free and open to all members of the University of Pittsburgh and the broader community who are engaged in study, research, or service to increase food security in the region.
According to Feed America, 1 in 8 Americans goes hungry every day. In our region, a growing number of families struggle to make ends meet. The symposium will bring together perspectives from community, government, non-profit, and research to share knowledge and best practices, and promote data literacy and social responsibility centered on the issue of food insecurity.
