Demographic Self-Disclosure Data in Research Ethics – Jun. 22, 2023

Session Description

June 22, 2023 @ 1:30 pm - 2:30 pm

Join us for the next workshop in the “Learning Together: Applying Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion Concepts in Research Ethics Review,” a monthly series bringing together experts from across the tri-campus on a range of research ethics topics from equity, diversity, and inclusion through a TCPS2 lens.

In the first half of this session, guest speaker Dr. Sonia Kang will explore:

  • Self-disclosure of demographic characteristics (e.g., race, Indigenous identity, disability status, sex, and gender) in the context of research ethics and through the lens of Social Identity Theory.

  • Respondents’ preferences, feelings, and perceptions around demographic group labels and the disclosure process in general.

  • Potential best practices (tools and methods) for the collection of demographic self-disclosure data.

Following the presentation, session participants will explore a featured case study in small groups before closing with final reflections.
