GEDI Geography in Practice webinar: Using the Ethnic Group Deprivation Index (EGDI) to inform decision making. Royal Geographical Society (with IBG) (online) 4th June 2024

June 4, 2024

GEDI team members Professor Chris Lloyd and Professor Gemma Catney will deliver the third Geography in Practice webinar hosted by the Royal Geographical Society with the Institute of British Geographers.

Title: Using the Ethnic Group Deprivation Index (EGDI) to inform decision making

Date/time: Tuesday 4 June, 12:00 to 13:00 (UK time)

Abstract: This webinar follows on from two sessions that introduced the Ethnic Group Deprivation Index (EGDI).

The third Ethnic Group Deprivation Index (EGDI) session will outline some potential uses of the EGDI. The project team will show how the EGDI provides evidence on ethnic inequalities and how it can be used to develop policy and direct resources to those most in need.

Short presentations will be offered by analysts from the London Boroughs of Tower Hamlets and Hounslow who are already making use of the EGDI for understanding ethnic inequalities. The session will provide examples which attendees can build on in their own work.

The EGDI was developed as part of the Economic and Social Research Council funded project Geographies of Ethnic Diversity and Inequalities.

This EGDI session is part of a series of three webinars hosted by the Royal Geographical Society with IBG. The series explores the methodology behind the Ethnic Group Deprivation Index, shows how the EGDI reveals stark neighbourhood ethnic inequalities, and provides practical guidance on analysing the EGDI and examples of how it might be used by you and your organisation.
