Data Literacy is the bedrock of a data-driven organisation. To be truly data-driven, an organisation must have an embedded data culture. That means there must be a global understanding of the value of data, and how to consume and apply the insights that are provided by visualisations and dashboards.

The purpose of this talk is to explain what Data Literacy means for an organisation, why it’s important for all sectors and regions, and what practical steps you can take to help build a culture in your organisation that will support and sustain a digital transformation.

Join Chris and Sarah at DataVizLive on 10 November, and get the chance to ask them questions and learn more about how you can ensure the narrative you create in your data visualisations is racially sensitive and inclusive.
