The topic of economic gender imbalance is highly important, but very complex and even potentially boring to convey. So how then to best communicate the meaning behind all the numbers and statistics that are deeply buried in a 150-page report titled the "Women's Economic Opportunity Index" (PDF), developed by The Economist Intelligence Unit?
A traditional PowerPoint presentation?
Or one on visualization steroids? That is: an infographically-augmented presentation?
The following 6-minute infographic presentation, watchable below, was given at the prestigious World In 2011 Festival, an event that coincided with the 25th Anniversary of The Economist's "The World In..." print publication. The presentation tells the story of where women stand in the context of business, regarding issues such as maternity leave or property rights.
What do you think? Should all statistics-rich presentations be given in this way?
