  • Data Visualization for Social Change

    by Lauren Carmin and Desmond Spruijt

    The power of data visualization as a tool for social change can no longer be ignored. Successfully illustrating vital data can help advocates maximize the impact of sound science in public debate and policy, whether using maps and graphs or motion and info graphics. But many nonprofits still struggle with effective information design and delivery. This session aims to bring together visualization experts with advocates working for social good to discuss effective ways to visually present data in clear and meaningful ways. We welcome graphics and visualization pros to share viewpoints and lend a little knowledge towards establishing best practices for illustrating critical social issues. Advocates are encouraged to bring success stories or vexing challenges to the discussion. Participants will come away inspired and more knowledgeable, and will make connections with others facing similar challenges that can potentially lead to innovative solutions.

    At 11:00am to 12:00pm, Saturday 10th March

    In Room 8A, Austin Convention Center
