Communication in Statistics and Data Science

Power skills like communication are key in cross-disciplinary and collaborative professional settings. While different types of jobs have varying goals and considerations, these skills apply across industries and throughout a statistician’s career. Effective science communication is even more essential in today’s world of soundbites and short attention spans.

The ASA offers resources for communication in statistics and data science. Look for the upcoming special edition of Amstat News focusing on communication, including articles such as “Navigating Tough Conversations in Statistical Collaborations” and “What’s Our Point? Flipping the Paradigm for Communication in Statistics and Data Science.”

Also tune into the North Carolina Chapter’s webinar “Communication and Leadership Skills for Navigating Your Professional Success,” which highlights considerations beyond expertise in statistical methodologies.
