Why are REN Questions Important

Facilitator: John Martinez De-Jesus, Bilingual Community Engagement and Access Coordinator

Collecting data on race, ethnicity, and nationality can be confusing or uncomfortable for many interviewers. In our line of work, this data is not only necessary but crucial when attempting to understand the inequalities faced by different ethnic/racial groups, planning and funding programs that provide services for specific populations, and generating reports that outline our efforts in removing obstacles for folks in underrepresented communities.

By the end of this training, participants will be able to:

  • Understand and describe the difference between race, ethnicity, and nationality
  • Acknowledge the importance of correct demographic data collection
  • Utilize best practices during demographic data recording
  • Normalize and explain the data collection questions
