Curso en Data Analytics for Inclusion & Diversity



We are immersed in the information society with a wide availability of data from different fields, making it necessary to have tools that help us to understand and use the information extracted from them in our daily lives. For instance, organisations usually collect demographic data from their employees, customers, or members to know the composition of their workforce or community. They often compare their inclusion and diversity data with industry or regional benchmarks to assess their performance relative to their peers, which helps to identify areas for improvement.
In particular, statistical analysis of inclusion and diversity data is a crucial practice for organisations and institutions aiming to promote equity, fairness, and representation. This analysis involves collecting, processing, and interpreting data on different aspects of diversity, such as gender, race, ethnicity, age, disability, and more. Statistical analysis can help identify the main causes of diversity and inclusion challenges, and
factors such as biased hiring practices, lack of diversity in leadership, or discriminatory policies can be uncovered through data analysis. The ultimate goal of diversity and inclusion data analysis is to generate actionable insights that inform policies and strategies.
In summary, statistical analysis of inclusion and diversity data can greatly assist organisations in identifying disparities, setting targets and taking meaningful action to foster a more inclusive and equitable environment. It is an ongoing process that requires commitment, transparency, and ethical considerations to drive positive change.
The course "Data Analytics for Inclusion & Diversity" aims to offer a specific formative program to Bachelor and Master students in the use of Statistical techniques to the analysis of diversity and inclusion data.

- To identify appropriate statistical techniques and apply them to available data

- To become familiar with the statistical software R

- To perform a basic statistical analysis of a data set and interpret the results appropriately

- To demonstrate an effective ability to communicate the results of a statistical analysis both in writing and orally

- To evaluate critically the assumptions, limitations and implications of statistical analyses

- To develop intercultural skills and learn to work in multidisciplinary teams

- To create a greater awareness of inclusion and diversity and integrate them in the learning experience

The approach of the course is eminently practical with the support of statistical software tools, so we hope that the course will be enjoyable and useful for everyone.
The only academic prerequisites are elementary knowledge of mathematics and basic user computing.
Therefore, the ideal profile of participants to make the most of the opportunities offered by this course is that of students of any degree, with a critical spirit, capable of
appreciating the importance of Statistics in the current context and interested in learning about statistical data processing.

Total number of 15-20 students: 5-7 students from each partner university plus a yet to be determined number from the University of Jaén.
Students will be selected by each partner university from among those who show the greatest involvement and best performance in their degree and who have applied to participate in this BIP.

The contents of this course are structured in 5 modules that include exploratory, descriptive and inference techniques:

Chapter 1: Introduction to statistical data analysis and first steps with R software
Chapter 2: Exploratory analysis of inclusion and diversity data using graphical and analytical methods
Chapter 3: Categorical data analytics for inclusion and diversity
Chapter 4: Inference techniques applied to inclusion and diversity data
Chapter 5: Modelling the relationship between inclusion and diversity characteristics

With the support of the statistical software R, flipped classroom methodology and case studies, the course content will be more interactive and the experience that participants already have can be shared. In addition, the collaborative work between students from different backgrounds and the cultural activities programmed will allow participants to take part in an international exchange.

The BIP will take the form of project work, in transnational teams, based on the statistical analysis of inclusion and diversity data.
The programme framework consists of:

Face-to-face teaching (June 3-7, 2024), at the University of Jaén, that will include

- Lecture time (20 hours)

- Cultural and social activities.

Online activities (June 10-14, 2024), that will include

- Asynchronous activities (Viewing of videos and reading of scientific texts, )

- Student’s work (proposed activities, preparation of a poster)

- 4 hours of webinars (student presentations, discussion, conclusions)

- Guest lectures.


Online poster, infographic or slide presentation (10-15 minutes): Students will present the results of a statistical analysis carried out using one of the techniques covered in the lectures. (Relative weight 30 %).

Attendance, student work, and participation: This includes attendance, active participation in class activities, and completion of assigned work. (Relative weight: 70 %).
