In this hands-on workshop, you will learn how to use data visualization and storytelling in a culturally responsive way. This workshop takes the basics of data visualization and embeds a culturally responsive and equity-based lens. You will learn the “Why” and the “How to” using a seven-step framework

Presenter: Heather Krause CEO Datassist, PStat, Data Science for the Non-profit World

Heather has spent over a decade doing research on the best data viz and evaluation communication practices from a cross-cultural perspective.


A seven-step framework will be used to provide practical checklists and processes for building data products that are suitable for diverse cultural settings and communities. You will work individually and together in small groups with simple data sets and graphics to apply the lessons learned. The hands-on activities include non-technical experiences using Lego bricks, modeling clay, crayons, and tiles and technical practice using Excel.

The workshop will include:

  • An overview of culturally responsive and equitable data and data visualization.
  • Step by step checklists to embed cultural responsiveness into your work.
  • Hands-on non-technical exercises that provide direct experience in what equity in data viz feels and looks like.
  • Hands-on practice building culturally responsive data visualizations in Excel.

The class is primarily taught in Excel 2013 (PCs), Excel 2010 (PCs), and Excel 2011 (Mac). Attendees should have some basic working knowledge of Excel.

Cancellation Policy: 50% refund one month before event. After that Substitute name only.
