This is something that I try to get across to students constantly. When you're looking at a spreadsheet of data, it's easy to lose sight of the fact that what you're looking at are real people with real lives and all of the complexity that comes along with that. I really try to get across that it's important not to dehumanize people through data.

Yep.  The flip side, though, is that people can focus too much on the social and humanized aspect of any endeavour and it's actually easy for it to lose sight of what its supposed to be achieving.
