Show, Don't Tell: A Data Visualization Workshop
United Way for Southeastern Michigan (UWSEM) hosted EarlyWorks for a primer on developing effective data visualization for socializing insights. Serene Arena and Becca Rueble demonstrated how data visualization can be utilized from a strategic communications and messaging perspective. Key to this training was approaching data visualization as a process, rooted in the idea that your audience and message identification is necessary before creating your data visuals :
Identify your audience
Identify your story
Choose visual method(s)
Workshop attendees were able to immediately apply these visualization fundamentals. Attendees put their newly acquired skills to use and created fantastic digestible insights.
