DataGeniusOn Tuesday, Oct. 20 from 7 – 10 PM, SAP data visualization experts, SAP mentors, judges, and Data Geniuses from far and wide will come together in Las Vegas to help end slave labor using data.

At this feature Viz-a-Thon event, Ben Hafner and Adeline Lambert of Made in a Free World (MIAFW) will be present to help guide Data Geniuses as they wrangle and visualize real-world data provided by the non-profit organization.

Made in a Free World helps bring together consumers and businesses to free people who are working in slavery conditions by helping businesses understand the risk of forced labor in their supply chains. The goal is to empower a network of aligned buyers and suppliers to disrupt supply chains that use slave labor.

In the Viz-a-thon, DataGenius experts will be mentoring and leading teams as they work together to help identify the risk of slave labor entering supply chains in business operations around the world. Teams will present their work to a panel of judges for feedback and suggestions and be scored based on criteria to be provided at the event.

The judging panel stars:

  • Jayne Landry, Global VP and GM of Business Intelligence,
  • Tammy Powlas and Jamie Oswald – DataGenius Mentors
  • Don Ginocchio – University Alliances
  • Ben and Adeline of MIAFW

Food and beverages will be provided plus participants will receive a free, limited edition DataGenius t-shirt and have the chance to win DataGenius prizes!

Join us in an evening of inspirational data storytelling that will help change the world.
