A Data Viz Vision

20140512

Data Viz VisionThe AGF Evaluating for Impact affinity group has partnered with the Arizona Evaluation Network (AZENet) and is pleased to invite AGF members to attend this keynote address of their spring conference.

What happens when data visualization explodes? Dr. Stephanie Evergreen will address the proliferation of data visualization and what it means for communication. She will set forth a direction for how researchers, evaluators, nonprofits and grantmakers should approach the construction of their graphs and charts, based on two values: fair representation of the data relationship and elevation of the data’s message. Attendees will leave with a sharper view of their charge as communicators and with practical, immediately implementable ideas to massively improve their data visualizations.

Stephanie Evergreen is a sought-after speaker, designer and evaluator who brings a research-based approach to helping clients shine through their work. She holds a PhD in interdisciplinary evaluation, which included a dissertation on the extent of graphic design use in written evaluation reporting. She is active in the American Evaluation Association and author of, “Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings for Maximum Impact,” Sage (Oct. 2013).
