Data Literacy Programs 101: The What, Why and How to Get Started

Listen in on a Data Foundation interview with Val on how to get started on a successful Data Literacy Program.

https://www.datafoundation.org/events-list/data-literacy-programs-101-the-what-why-and-how-to-get-started/2020

Overview

While living in unprecedented times, one thing is clear:  the ability to make data-informed and evidence-based decisions has never been more critical in our work lives and personal lives.  Data literacy has been emerging steadily as a top priority for workforce upskilling, yet we now also see firsthand the criticality of citizen data literacy.  

As a basis for near-term steps and longer-term planning, this webinar set a baseline and common language to address:

  •  What is data literacy and why does it matter now (individually and collectively)?

  •  What does a data literacy program include, and who is doing this today?

  •  What are the key steps to get started?
