The Data Literacy Project Announces Community Forum Dedicated to Fostering a More Data Literate Society

Sponsored by Businesswire

Today the Data
Literacy Project
, the community dedicated to making a data literate
world, announced the launch of its official community forum – an online
destination where individuals and organizations can engage with industry
leaders and influencers to share ideas that fuel data literacy.

An essential skill in the Fourth Industrial Revolution, data literacy
empowers everyone to ask questions of data and machines, build
knowledge, make decisions and communicate its meaning with others. The
Data Literacy Project, which was launched by founding partners Qlik,
Institute of Marketing
and Data
to the People
in October 2018, aims to create a more data literate
society and places data literacy at the heart of individual and
organizational success.

This official community forum will be the epicentre of the data literacy
conversation, 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.

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 organizations globally to make data literacy an
  • Creating the most accessible and comprehensive global data literacy
    educational resource ecosystem
  • Empowering educational institutions globally to place data literacy
    into the mainstream curriculum

“The new community forum will further aid us in our mission to create a
more data literate society,” said Jordan Morrow, Chair of the Data
Literacy Project Advisory Board and Global Head of Data Literacy at
Qlik. “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.”

The community forum is now live on the Data Literacy Project website at
