In episode 11 we talk to Jess Gergen who sits squarely in the Data for Good category about data visualisation and storytelling.
Visualst is a public interest data design firm. They are a tribe of thinkers and creatives who connect data with people so that they can make better decisions.
Jess and her team work with government departments, NPOs and donors to better understand their data through visualisation and storytelling. And they do this to improve social outcomes across Africa which is highly commendable in our overly commercialised world.
Our conversation covers:
- How data analytics was used during flood relief in Mozambique and how those lessons and models will be used during future cyclone relief efforts
- The growing level of data literacy across organisations and departments
- One of Jess's first projects which used data analytics to track the sustainability of the coffee supply chain in East Africa...a perfect fit for the show!
