Getting Started in the Racial Equity Data Lab: Create Your Own $15/Hour Fact Sheet

Join us for this three-part webinar series where the Atlas team and our partners at Tableau and Lovelytics will walk you through creating your own $15/hour fact sheet in the Lab, from accessing the data to publishing a custom visualization that you can download, share, and use to advance equitable recovery strategies in your community. We recommend that you join for all three installments in this series to work through the full process with us; please note that you'll have to complete a separate registration form for each training.

You will learn about the data behind the dashboard, and why disaggregated data is critical in equity campaigns. During the webinar we will walk you through how to pull up the data for your community and explore who can access a $15/hour wage.
