This livestream event features Fanta Traore in a conversation around her decade of experiences in leveraging data and research to solve her team’s most pressing challenges through analysis, storytelling, and program implementation. She is a co-founder and CEO of The Sadie Collective, the first and only organization dedicated to empowering and equipping Black women in the pipeline and pathway of economics and related fields through curated content creation, programming, and mentorship. Before this, Fanta worked as a Senior Research Assistant at the U.S. Central Bank, where she conducted data analysis and economic research to influence organizational strategy and policy. Fanta loves using data not only to understand and craft stories about complex organizational policy challenges but to do something about what that data reveals.
