You've heard about data visualization, but perhaps it sounded a little distant and abstract. Maybe you've wondered about what is it, what tools are used in making it, and the kind of impact it can have. Data visualization holds the power to represent a large amount of information, showing patterns, problems, and elevating stories that may normally be hidden. 

Designers have an important role to play in making data come alive. In this event, organized by AIGA DC's D&I Task Force, get a glimpse into the world of data visualization and come away with an understanding of how you can use it to make a difference. You'll hear from Kate Rabinowitz, the founder of Data Lens DC, on how data visualization works and how you, as a designer, might be able to put it to work bringing about awareness and change.
