Data Literacy Project a soapbox for today's world of data

13 May 2019

Qlik, Accenture, and Experian are just three of several organisations to get behind an initiative to create a more data-literate society in an era when literacy fuels business success.

The Data Literacy Project, launched in October 2018, also includes founding partners Cognizant, Pluralsight, Chartered Institute of Marketing, and Data to the People. The project aims to ‘create a more data literate society and places data literacy at the heart of individual and organisational success’.

As part of this, the Data Literacy Project today launched an online community forum where individuals and businesses can share data literacy ideas with industry leaders and influencers.

The forum will also be the ‘epicentre’ of the conversation about data literacy, where people can have their questions answered, start discussions around the most important and relevant topics, share tips and ideas, and ultimately give back by supporting others to shape a successful, data literate world.

“The new community forum will further aid us in our mission to create a more data literate society,” says Qlik’s global head of data literacy and chair of the Data Literacy Project Advisory Board, Jordan Morrow.

“As the Data Literacy Project's community continues to grow, we're excited to provide a space that will foster constructive conversations and allow us to spread our message on the importance of data to individuals around the world.”

Last month, the Data Literacy Project announced the launch of its Advisory Board with eight key appointments: Jordan Morrow, Qlik; Paul Malyon, Experian; Jane Crofts, Data To The People; Rahul Bhargava, MIT; Meri Rosich, VISA; Chantilly Jaggernauth, Millennials and Data; Ben Jones, Data Literacy, LLC; and Alan Schwarz, DataPhi Communications, LLC.

These data literacy thought leaders will also be active on the forum to provide impartial, third-party strategic counsel and direction in support of the Data Literacy Project's three commitments:

•    Inspiring major organisations globally to make data literacy an imperative

•    Creating the most accessible and comprehensive global data literacy educational resource ecosystem

•    Empowering educational institutions globally to place data literacy into the mainstream curriculum.
