Title: Compassionate Data Collection: Promoting Equity in Evaluation

Description: In this webinar, Dr. Deb Chiodo from CAMH and Daniel Murcia from Alvenco consulting, will explore equity and intersectionality, what it is and why it is important, and how to integrate equity into evaluation activities. In addition, this webinar will discuss the importance of 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.


Dr. Deb Chiodo is the Director of Data Management and Evaluation for YWHO where she works collaboratively with communities and service providers across sectors to lead the evaluation of YWHO initiatives and the development of data systems that support the transformation of Ontario’s mental health and addictions systems. Dr. Chiodo’s research interests have focused on the implementation and scale-up of complex designs in youth mental health and health promotion. Dr. Chiodo is also an Assistant Professor at Western University in the Faculty of Education and Counseling Psychology Department.
