Transforming Data into Stories: A Conversation with Ann Emery
Show Notes

For those of us working in communities, communicating is a critical skill. Now more than ever, we have to present data and information in a way that is accessible, creates trust, and motivates community-based organizations to take action. Long written reports are not going to make that happen!

Ann Emery is a highly sought after data visualization expert and teacher and I know you will enjoy this conversation.  In this episode, Ann joins me to discuss ways we can use data to communicate more effectively. We talk about how to use data visualization to get the attention of community groups and how to deal with mistrust of data.
