In January 2019, we’re hosting our biggest event ever, a free seminar by nationally-known author and speaker Alberto Cairo! The event will be free of cost and held at General Assembly on Thursday, January 24, 2019 from 6:30-9 p.m.
For the past year Professor Cairo has been on an international lecture tour about citizen data literacy. It is all too easy in our time for facts to be manipulated for political purposes, and we believe citizen data literacy is a critical and under-developed skill. As a community of professionals who tell stories with data, we’re in a unique position to help bring relevant knowledge and tools around this topic to Denver while keeping the conversation objective (the lecture is non-partisan). Join us and learn more about how we can fight against fake data and misleading information!
Professor Cairo has agreed to speak in Denver for no fee, if we are able to cover his travel costs. We need your support to make this happen! Please click “Donate” below and give what you can. Everyone who gives will be recognized at the event (unless they specify otherwise). Thank you!
We are a guru-free community of individuals passionate about telling stories effectively with data. Our free events are facilitated by community members and center around our values of practicality, diversity of perspectives, sharing resources, and cultural sensitivity.
