Virtual Summit 2021

Visualizing Every Person: How Disaggregated Data Can Build a More Just World

We may not be able to gather in person, but it doesn’t mean we can’t come together. Join us for this year’s virtual Tableau Foundation Summit, our annual conference featuring sessions on the effective use of data from nonprofit leaders across the world.

And in this moment of challenge and uncertainty, the work of this community of practitioners has never been more important. Your data is more than a mark on the screen—it is a person who is themselves facing their own health, economic, and social challenges.

Over the course of the two day conference, we’ll host conversations and presentations from a variety of Tableau Foundation partners. Together, we'll explore ways disaggregated data is opening a window on the needs of people, and highlighting opportunities to help through and after the COVID-19 crisis.
