Black Lives Matter @ Airbnb

In light of the discussions of data visualization in class today. I wanted to talk about an example of using data visualization as a means of sending a powerful message. Airbnb’s black employee group worked with people in the Design and Arts department to photograph 300 employees and use those photographs to create a space in Airbnb’s headquarter for solidarity. The photographs were place all over Airbnb to create a visual demonstration of unity. This is just one example of how visualization can be used to communicate an important message.
