New York Times Morning Consult

Presentations That Punch

Spending much of my time with clients doing research, I invest time looking at how others present findings. This new information to enrich our understand hit me with a punch.  For your own unfettered reaction read the short article here.
This research by Morning Consult and the New York Times took my breath way. I sit here still gasping a little. The flipflop of an out of water fish comes to mind.
Having absorbed the words, I looked again at the data visualization. The core graphic suggests a lightly drawn pencil outline of a man’s face.  The number of faces represents the ratio of activities.  Internally my stomach lifts pushing warm air across open lips. My arms feel weak. The warm coffee cup offers come comfort to my palms.
Here it is:
Many men doing wrong already know that their behaviour is sexist and offensive.
And we gain a sense of the numbers of men involved and severity of risk. Risk to me and your female colleagues; your professional partners with whom you seek to further the goals of your organization.
There is so much knowledge of what’s wrong but insufficient change. And I’m getting sick of it.
In 2017, the bad news was: we saw a lot of coverage about the predatory use of power. The good news: we saw a lot of uncovering of the abuse of power.
So despite some breathlessness, and qualms about being off-topic I’m punching publish.  What are you doing?
“If enough of the right people, see the changes as positive, it becomes part of the culture.”
