Moving forward and recovering from our current global pandemic, a more inclusive and engaged approach to the collection and use of our data will be needed to ensure that we have the best possible information to hand as we forge our collective pathway out of this crisis. The recent debates over COVID tracker-apps in various countries show us that whether or not people trust their governments will be crucial to the effectiveness of such tracking tools. To be worthy of trust takes more than authority. Regardless of how cutting edge and valid expertise or data may be, without a foundation of trust and good relationships with our peers and the communities we hope to serve, it can prove difficult for others to accept new knowledge and change their behaviour. Trustbuilding forges the relationship needed to support the innovations and actions conducive to a community’s resilience and wellbeing: the more trust that is present, the more risk is accepted, and the more risk-enabled a community, the more resilient it can become. This webinar explores operating principles for demonstrating trustworthiness to the public and embedding trust-building practices within our data work.
