DataFam Roundup: June 12 - 16, 2023

A weekly blog that brings together what’s trending in the Tableau Community all in one post.

Welcome! Dig into this week's DataFam Roundup—a weekly blog that brings together community content all in one post. As always, we invite you to send us your content—and the DataFam content from your peers that have inspired you! Find the content submission form here.

Data Pride

#DataPride today, and every day. We’re almost halfway through Pride Month, and there are still plenty of ways to celebrate our diverse community. Join us!  

Explore the Tableau Public Pride Viz Gallery which highlights visualizations that honor, recognize, and tell the stories and experiences of the LGBTQ+ community through data.

Attend our Data + Diversity event on Thursday, June 29th at 9am PT as we examine the intersection of data and human rights and celebrate our LGBTQ+ community. 

Participate in a Tableau Community challenge:

  • Analyze the locations of the “YOU ARE LOVED” billboards through a map challenge. These billboards were first created by Rae Senarighi for FairWisconsin and GSafe, two Wisconsin organizations working for LGBTQ+ rights throughout the state. Today, they are spread across 300 locations.
  • Build a table using Lambda Literary Awards Finalists & Winners. The Lambda Literary Awards, also known as the “Lammys,” are prestigious literary awards that recognize and celebrate outstanding works of literature that explore LGBTQ+ themes, experiences, and identities across various genres, including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, and more.
  • Diversity in Data is visualizing LGBTQ+ representation in film this month using a number of smaller data sets which includes a breakdown of sex and ethnicity.
