Best Practices:
  • Visually beautiful!
  • The organization is perfect with the totals across the top and then the breakdown into the verticals.
  • I knew the story as soon as I read the title.
  • I like how the headers repeated at the bottom of the chart. This is useful because the viz is long.
  • I love the comparisons to the Top 50 US companies, to the total US and to the "other" categories.
  • The alphabetical sorting is appropriate; this makes it easier to find a company.
  • The story is clear: more women are needed in tech.
Recommended Enhancements:
  • None
