For the latest episode of Data Brilliant, Joe DosSantos is joined by Kevin Hanegan. Kevin is the Chair of the advisory board at the Data Literacy Project and author of Turning Data into Wisdom, where he provides tools, definitions and templates to help professionals make data-informed decisions.
During the episode, Kevin and Joe explore the definition of data literacy and why it means different things to different people. They discuss the importance of developing soft skills like emotional intelligence and active listening to becoming truly data literate, as well as how to ask the right questions of data. Based on his own experiences, Kevin also explains how cognitive diversity can open us up to new perspectives – in data and in life – and mitigate bias.
