Fix Yr Data — How to change your gender and name info in Yale’s systems (and what Yale can do with it!)

In person
Wednesday, November 17, 2021, 5:30pm to 7:00pm
Did you know you can change your gender marker and preferred name in Yale’s systems? (And did you know that ‘non-binary’ is an option now?) Are you curious about what Yale can do with the info you provide? Have you tried to update your data in one place, but gotten frustrated that it doesn’t match elsewhere? Does the whole thing just feel kind of intimidating?
Bring your laptop or your phone (and your questions!) to this hands-on workshop! We’ll walk you through the process of updating this data in Yale’s student information system and employee records system and give you a better understanding of how Yale’s data systems talk (or don’t talk) to each other. We’ll talk about how and why Yale uses that data, who can see it, and what your data can’t be used for. Plus, we can point you toward resources for changing your name and gender marker more broadly, at the state and federal level.
