Non-profits around the world are driving positive social change but some of them lack the in-house resources to effectively tell their story with the data they have. Viz For Social Good (VFSG) helps non-profits thrive by connecting talented community members with organizations in need of data visualization skill sets.
In November 2021, Viz For Social Good ran a community poll, the results of which will help shape their diversity & inclusion efforts. 224 people responded from 38 different countries.

Sunny Street is changing the world by providing healthcare to the most vulnerable people in Eastern Australia. One conversation between a Sunny Street volunteer and a patient can change the course of both of their lives.
Although the Covid-19 pandemic caused many clinics to be cancelled, Sunny Street volunteers had the same (or more) conversations and consultations. There has been little change in patient demographic throughout the pandemic.
Volunteering on the latest #VizforSocialGood project by @VizFSG and @hi_sunnystreet. I looked at patient demographics over time, and which consultation types patients require most often.— Nicola Rennie (@nrennie35) September 13, 2021
