The Covid-19 pandemic has had a tremendous impact on communities around the world. The impact has been felt in healthcare, economic, business, government, education, and social areas. It has put people at odds over vaccines, placed local government policies against federal policies, and beliefs versus medicine. Some may say the world we are living in is full of chaos over this situation. Businesses are demanding that employees get vaccinated or face termination of employment. And this has led to a situation where the legality of getting vaccinated has reached the state courthouse in Your State, USA.
The stage has been set for two opposing legal teams to argue their case before the state supreme court in Your State, USA. A very large grocery store chain, Fine Foods, has asked that their employees get vaccinated or face termination of employment. The company argues that as a supplier of goods and services to government entities, Fine Foods must follow vaccine guidelines set by Your State, USA. The Grocery Union
Workers of America is arguing that their members cannot be required to get vaccinated and that this is against the law.
For this assignment, you will choose a legal team, either Fine Foods or Grocery Union Workers of America (GUWA). Your role is a data analyst for the respective law firm representing the side YOU choose. The lead attorney has tasked you with extracting data to support their legal case for vaccinations. If you choose the Fine Foods legal team, you will support all employees getting vaccinated. If you choose the Grocery Union Workers of America (GUWA) legal team, you will support a person’s right to choose to get vaccinated and, of course, not lose their job. It is important for you to focus on your role as data analyst and provide data. You should not try to present any actual laws pertinent to Covid-19.
Although this topic may be emotionally charged, your job is to present data-centric evidence which can be presented in court. Your data should be credible and convincing.
The lead attorney is beginning to prepare the final case documents and get ready for trial. The lead attorney has asked you to prepare some samples of visualizations using the source data below. These visualizations should be curated by you because you believe they capture actionable insights. In other words, visuals that you believe will help your legal team win their case.
The lead attorney has asked you to prepare a PowerPoint deck with 5 visual examples. Each slide should have:
- A brief caption at the top to explain the visual.
- A visual you either curate from the source data, orone that you create yourself using raw values from the source data.
- An assessment of the visual describing which of thethree concepts below applies to the visual.
- The visual links source data and insights.
- The visual highlights the key themes.
- The visual turns insight into action. What action can be taken?
