Communicating Data to Educate, Enlighten, and Inspire

Event Description

This event is brought to you by Forum One and the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation.

Effectively communicating data is about supplying the right audience, with the right amount of data, in the right format.

Health, science, government and nonprofit organizations are collecting massive amounts of data in all kinds of shapes and formats. Despite tools becoming more sophisticated, many organizations are still figuring out how to unlock their data to present them in intelligible and accessible formats for impact. Luckily, Seattle is a hub for data designers, analysts, researchers and enthusiasts who are making great strides in creating powerful stories told through data.

Join us in learning more about how some of the best data users are communicating data to key audiences and seeing results. Expert presentations will be followed by speaker-facilitated group discussions expanding on themes and challenging participants to think about using data to communicate impact.
