The Power of Business Literacy in the Data Community w/ Kate Strachnyi Leading with Data

    • Business

Today, many organizations are pushing for increasing and enhancing data literacy across their business — oftentimes running one-off trainings with the hopes of magically creating a more “literate” workforce.
But, it’s just not working. We need a different approach.
What if instead we focused on making technology more “business savvy” so that non-data people didn’t have to learn every data concept? What if instead of expecting non-data people to speak the language of data, we expected data scientists and analysts to speak the language of the business?
In this episode, we sat down with the one & only Kate Strachnyi, Founder and Community Manager of DATAcated, to discuss this vision for the future of data & analytics and how she educates today’s data professionals through community.
In this episode we also dive deeper into:
How & why Kate started DATAcated
The vision for her new centralized community: The DATAcated Circle
Her advice for others looking to build a brand and community on LinkedIn
A different approach to data literacy
Why technology needs to be built for the business user
The value of data analysts and scientists who work through a business lens
How more data can do more harm than good
How to tell data stories that people care about
Kate’s vision for the future of data & analytics
The importance of maintaining trust in data
The role big organizations will play in educating & enabling the data community
