NOAA EDMW 2022 has ended

Envisioning the Future of the NOAA Data Enterprise

September 12-16, 2022


Thank you for your interest in the 2022 NOAA EDMW. The Workshop is over, but we’re excited to announce that the session recordings are available! Just click on a session, then under the Description section click on the "Session Recording Here" link. Be patient, it can take up to 20-30 seconds for the video to display.

The Workshop featured a diverse group of sessions and presentations that cover NOAA’s strategic goals. In addition, ‘Workshop Wednesday’ provided multiple opportunities to learn about techniques, tools, and experiences that help us achieve our data and strategic goals.

We would like to especially thank everyone who submitted sessions and abstracts! This workshop wouldn’t be possible without the great submissions from our colleagues!

NOAA increasingly addresses issues of diversity, equity, inclusion, access, and justice (DEIAJ), both in internal strategic documents and by following direction from the Executive Branch. While many of these topics relate to workforce diversity, DEIAJ also relates to NOAA data and data governance for service equity. For instance, which stakeholders can access NOAA data and downstream products and services, and is access equitable across, for example, tribal governments and minority serving institutions in higher education? Furthermore, is NOAA collecting or funding the collection of data about issues relevant to those from underserved and historically marginalized groups? What rights do people have to data collected about them or their property? And for workforce, how can NOAA’s data governance community reflect the demography and interests of all Americans?

This session invites abstracts for presentations about intersections between DEIAJ and NOAA data governance. In addition to the questions above and many other topics, abstracts might discuss ongoing projects related to building partnerships with a diverse array of stakeholders, collecting and storing data that can be disaggregated along intersectional categories, DEIAJ overlaps with data governance principle, or developing informational portals, analysis tools, and services that are equitable.

Presentations (abstracts by session here):
1. Data Governance for Service Equity Requires More than the FAIR Principles
- Steve Elliott, Beckett Sterner, Gina Eosco, Joseph Conran, Laura Newcomb
