Presentations and Communications#
We need to remember that it's very difficult to have a social impact through doing data science for social good work if you cannot convince organizations to work with you and tackle a problem, if no one understands what you did, and if they can't be convinced to use what you've done. We need to be able to communicate effectively abouthe work and spend a lot of time at DSSG training fellows on how to do that. Here are some resources that you'll find useful:
Data Visualization and Presentation Skills will help with that, whether you're communicating your work to a public audience or to stakeholders. When you're working directly with a project partner and are creating tools for them to use, keep Usability and User Interfaces in mind to make sure that whatever tools you create will be useful and usable.
