I came across this article on ”Use of Proprietary Software in the Aid Sector Perpetuates Racial Injustice “ at
It is disappointing to read that African colleagues are not able to participate as equals in humanitarian and development work in their own continent.
I would like to learn and understand more the scale of Racial Injustice in GIS/EO initiatives, projects , educational courses etc. Could I request you to share any information on this topic so I can learn more as I am writing an article on this topic.
I am looking for co-authors for this study and article. If you are interested to be a co-author for this study and article please email me at Suchith.Anand at ethicaldatainitiative.org<mailto:Suchith.Anand at ethicaldatainitiative.org> by 5th Sep 2022.
Are there any barriers for participation of economically poor colleagues and students in any GIS/EO Initiatives, projects , educational courses etc that you are aware of? If so, please provide details?
How can we replace the cycle of exclusion with a virtuous cycle of inclusion and human development?
Please email me your ideas and suggestions at Suchith.Anand at ethicaldatainitiative.org<mailto:Suchith.Anand at ethicaldatainitiative.org>
