Do No Harm with Data Viz
In today’s increasingly diverse world, it is more important than ever for data communicators to make sure that the way they analyze and present their data upholds the values of diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) and avoids perpetuating harm. This session will offer a set of starting points on how to apply an equity lens to the way we visualize data. Participants will learn about considerations surrounding the use of language, color, icons and imagery, ordering, and more in their charts and graphs. Participants should walk away from this session with an understanding of how to create and evaluate data-driven visuals that embody a DEI approach.
