Imagine this: you’re in front of your company’s executives, giving an important presentation. You created a series of charts and shared a handout prior to the presentation. One of the top executives approaches you and says: “I can’t read this chart. I’m color blind. Can you explain to me what it says?” It isn’t enough to be able to create accurate and visually appealing data visualizations – they need to be accessible to everyone. In this webinar, Rebeca will provide key tips on how you can incorporate accessibility in your data visualization.
Upon completion of this program, participants will:

  1.  Understand why accessibility is important in data visualization
  2. Apply the basic principles of accessibility
  3. Apply top tips for color, design, and style when creating accessible data  visualizations
