I will be giving workshops in Toronto on Feb. 27 and March 11 about system modelling and my Master’s Research Project:
Join the Effective Altruism Toronto meet-up for my workshop about Systems Thinking, Causal Modeling, and Urban Poverty Reduction. This will be on February 27, 2019, 7pm, at the OISE building upstairs from St. George Station, 252 Bloor St. West, room 8180. We will create causal models about local and global issues of interest to this thoughtful group. UPDATE Feb 28: I presented these slides and the group made models about food access, hiring practices, international migration, private schools, and fried chicken.
The Systems Thinking Ontario group will host my presentation about Using Systems Models for Decision-Making on March 11, 2019, 6:30pm, at OCAD University’s sLab, 205 Richmond St. West, room 410. There will be some conversation about the practical uses of systems thinking methods. This para-academic group suggests doing advance reading: sections 3 and 4.4 of my full report. UPDATE March 11: I presented these slides with some reflection on whether system modelling can influence politicians.
Stay tuned for future presentations and workshops about various aspects of my research project that developed the Poverty Reduction Model.
