We’ve entered a golden era of data. Indeed, according to Gartner “by 2022, 90% of corporate strategies will explicitly mention information as a critical enterprise asset and analytics as an essential competency.” In theory, this should be a huge opportunity for today’s young people given their exposure and comfort levels with tech. Especially if you assume they have a higher propensity to naturally develop the data literacy skills needed for digital business success, such as effective data analysis, storytelling and visualisation. But is any of this really true.
In this presentation Helena will examine:
- Why we need a data literate workforce?
- Whether young people are as data literate as employers expect them to be?
- How employers can leverage the unique skills of young people to become more digitally dexterous.
