Data Literacy at Scale

A Platform to Advance Data Literacy

Join the Harvard Data Science Initiative and The Institute for Experiential AI on Dec. 5 and 6, 2023 for this special, in-person event aimed at advancing data literacy among all parts of society. 

About Data Literacy at Scale

Data Literacy at Scale is a three-part event across two days and two campuses with a goal of providing a discussion platform to advance data literacy among all parts of society, and a special focus on schools and the workplace.

This event will bring together academicians, industry practitioners, government and NGO representatives who are passionate about and can advance data literacy in their respective focus areas. Attendees will share best practices and advance our collective awareness on challenges and potential solutions in building data literacy, a critical set of skills and knowledge in today’s digital economy.

Content directly from the event, and contributions from participants, will be considered for publication in the Harvard Data Science Review following a rigorous review process.


The event is comprised of three in-person components across two days. Note: there is not a virtual attendance option for this event, but select content will be shared at a later date.
