Many organizations are struggling to find ways to build capacity to work with data. Learning to work with data is like learning a new language; immersing yourself in the culture brings the best results. But trying to build a data culture can be a lonely effort in organizations that haven’t recognized the importance of data.
The Data Culture Project is set to change all of that. With funding from a 2016 Digital Impact Grant, The Engagement Lab at Emerson College and MIT Center for Civic Media joined forces with more than 30 organizations to develop a resource that would demystify data literacy.
The result is a hands-on, self-service curriculum that empowers professionals of all experience levels to ask questions, gather and analyze data, tell stories, and experiment with different audiences.
