Kristi Mansfield, CEO and Co-Founder of Seer Data and Analytics, helps people turn data into action by democratising data and making it accessible to local communities in the public sector.
Kristi discusses the importance of data storytelling and the power it holds in framing stories.
She emphasises that it’s not just about visualising data but also overlaying lived experiences and community data. By doing so, data storytelling can enable collaboration and address power asymmetries in society.
Kristi also talks about the challenges of data democratisation but acknowledges that there is a collaborative environment in Australia, with stakeholders from the not-for-profit, public, and philanthropic sectors working together to improve outcomes in communities.
She suggests that organisations need to make their data assets available to those who can make decisions, both within and outside their organisations, to enable data-informed decisions and storytelling.
Kristi believes that we are moving into an era of democratisation of information and data, where data is no longer controlled by data teams but is available across organisations and society.
She mentions that the Australian government has a strategy to use data as a useful resource to power innovation, economic development, and growth, and achieve efficiencies by 2030. However, this cannot be achieved if data is siloed and held by data teams only.
Kristi highlights the importance of democratising data and using it for data storytelling to enable collaboration, address power asymmetries, and make data-informed decisions.
Her insights are valuable for data professionals and leaders who aim to make data accessible and shareable for improving outcomes in their communities.
Kristi Mansfield and 130 Chief Data Officers from Australia’s top enterprise and government organisations will gather at Data Edge.
