Land, Life & Labor Acknowledgment:

During COVID-19, many of us are gathering virtually from many places and I want to acknowledge the ancestral homelands and traditional territories of Indigenous peoples who have been here since time immemorial. I want to recognize that we must continue to build our solidarity and kinship with Native peoples across the Americas and across the globe.

Jumpstart Seattle is an affiliate site of the University of Washington, which acknowledges the Coast Salish peoples of this land, the land which touches the shared waters of all tribes and bands within the Suquamish, Tulalip and Muckleshoot nations. I also recognize the Duwamish Tribe, whom are the First Peoples of the land that I work, live, and serve on, and remain unacknowledged by the federal, state, and local governments. https://www.realrentduwamish.org/.

I also acknowledge that this country would not exist if it wasn’t for the free, enslaved labor of African/Black people. I honor the legacy of the African diaspora and Black life, knowledge and skills stolen due to violence and white supremacy. While the movement for justice and liberation is building and we are witnessing the power of the people, many are still being met with violence and even being killed. Black Lives Matter. https://blacklivesseattle.org/

This Land, Life & Labor acknowledgment is a combination of the work of Iisaaksiichaa Ross Braine, Director of wǝɫǝbʔaltxʷ – Intellectual House, and SpeakOut Summer Institute.

What does an economist look like? What are the challenges and consequences of diversity in economics-related fields?

Come hear from our panel of economists on the challenges they have faced in their careers, both as students and professionals. Our panelists will discuss how learning economics has helped to shape their transitions from college to career, and how economics has affected their ways of thinking in today’s socioeconomic and sociocultural climate for marginalized and underrepresented communities.

We aim to expose the problems, barriers, and obstacles to making change, and hope to discuss how diverse perspectives and experiences across race, ethnicity, and gender help to ultimately advance the field of economics.

Join us for Data Science in the Public Sector!

Please join the MS in Data Science for our Data Science in the Public Sector panel happening Monday, May 10 from 6-7 PM on Zoom. We’ll be joined by three panelists to talk about how they’re using data science to make an impact in the fields of government and education. We’ll have some questions to kick things off, and we encourage you to bring your own questions for them, as well! You can RSVP at this link.


Jane Barker is a Senior Data Scientist at Seattle Public Schools, where she serves as a technical lead for the district 9th Grade Success Tracker and works with district stakeholders to identify areas of inquiry and develop supporting analyses. She also leads a research study investigating how district teachers and staff members interact with district data platforms and dashboards to identify opportunities for improved usefulness and usability. She has developed machine learning models predicting on-time graduation and college and career readiness, and leveraged causal inference methods to explore factors predicting participation in remote learning platforms. Jane holds a PhD in cognitive psychology and neuroscience from the University of Colorado Boulder, where her research program investigated environmental and genetic influences on children’s developing self-regulation and self-direction. She also holds an MPA in public policy analysis and public finance from Indiana University Bloomington. Prior to her current role, she was a researcher at McREL International and a consulting researcher with the Marsico Institute of Early Learning. When not in the office, Jane prefers to be on a trail – skiing, backpacking, or hiking.

James Lamar Foster is a Ph.D. Candidate at The University of Washington’s Education Policy, Organizations, and Leadership program in the College of Education. His work investigates questions at the intersections of race, place, policy, and practice. His current research uses analytical approaches from critical theory and organizational theory in concert with computational methods to understand how school leaders create conditions to foster marginalized students’ social and emotional development. Lamar enjoys spending time with friends and family and watching Manchester United F.C. in his free time.

An alum of the MSDS program, Richard Todd is Data Analytics Lead for the City of Seattle; in this role he is lead data scientist in the Office of the Mayor and responsible for the City-wide data science program. Projects range from ad-hoc business intelligence to predictive modelling and A/B testing; they cover the breadth of City service areas from homelessness services, to utility customer outreach and library loans! Richard’s first child was born in March, meaning that he is on parental leave from the City and has abandoned all hobbies for the time being.

We hope to see you on the 10th!
