"Refugees, Actually" by Rachel Factor
What are refugees, actually? Refugees have been all over the news lately, but misinformation abounds. This talk will clarify what refugees are, how the resettlement program works, and present some exciting research initiatives that aim to use data for good.
Rachel Factor has worked in refugee resettlement since 2009 at sites in Minnesota, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and Texas. As a data enthusiast, Rachel's goal is to integrate quantitative methods into resettlement activities to promote evidence-based programming and clear data.
