As part of ODI Learning Month 2021, and the ODI Summit 2021, this taster training session introduces you to our brand new, online Data Ethics canvas. It’s a great and interactive way to help you and your team make better and more ethical decisions about data.


To attend the taster training session below, you’ll need to buy an ODI Summit 2021 ticket. Then on the day, just find the Taster Training Sessions section and join what you like.

The ODI’s Data Ethics Canvas is one of our most popular tools and has even been translated into five different languages. In addition to the print at home guides, we also have a brand new online version exclusively available to ODI members. This new iteration takes users through each section where questions can be answered, actions recorded, and decisions made. Each section can be marked for review, outputs shared confidentially with other team members, and reports generated for managers and decision makers.

In this session we’ll demo the latest version of the online Data Ethics Canvas, and demonstrate how it can be used to support effective decision making in data projects.

When is the taster training session?

This session runs on November 2nd 2021 @ 14:45 – 15:30 (BST), at the ODI Summit 2021.

If you have a particular ethical problem that you need help unpicking, the ODI can support you and your team through our interactive data ethics workshop.

What is ODI Learning Month?

National Learning and Development Month is a global event celebrated every October, that encourages people to learn and build brand new skills. In support and celebration of this, the ODI has our very own Learning Month that we run in tandem, ahead of our annual summit.

Each year we focus on different topics. This year to coincide with the theme of Summit 2021, we’ll be looking at how we’ve all become ‘data people’ – more conscious than ever of the data we produce, use and share. Our three key areas of education will be: Building healthy open data ecosystems, Leading data transformation, and Data governance and ethics. All brought to you via a mix of training, webinars, and podcasts. 

Our one-off programme has been created exclusively for Learning Month, and all of the training is available at a subsidised price. All the more reason to get stuck in and get learning!
