[Hackathon] Viz for Social Good in Dublin

  • Tableau Dublin 160 Shelbourne Road Building 3 Dublin Ireland (map)


Join us for our 2nd Data+Women Tableau User Group in Dublin where we will be collaborating with Viz for Social Good. The event is intended to support women who work in the field of data and analytics. Everyone is welcome, regardless of gender. If you want to read more about the wider Data+Women Community, there is a nice overview here from Tableau's Jordan Scott. You can also have a listen to the latest webinar from the Data+Women Virtual Tableau User Group.

On the night, we look forward to hearing from three Women in Data listed below. We will then participate in a collaborative hands-on session using Tableau. Together we can explore and discuss the data for the latest project featured on the Viz for Social Good website and design some visualisations. Viz for Social Good is an organisation founded by Tableau Zen Master Chloe Tseng. Its goal is to harness the power of data visualisation to support non-profits. I would encourage everyone to read up on the project and review the data in advance.

This event is for Tableau users, from beginner level to advanced, who are keen to put their data visualisations skills to good use.
