Canopy’s Lab Notes: Entry #1 on Divergent Stacked Bar Charts

The Canopy Lab is excited to announce our new series: Canopy’s Lab Notes. This new series will feature a behind-the-scenes look into our thinking and our processes, as we help our partners navigate complexity through a systems lens. The Canopy Lab was contracted by USAID Feed the Future Market Systems and Partnerships (MSP) Activity in Spring 2021 to conduct a rapid online survey exploring the impact of the pandemic on the work lives of Market Systems Development professionals. In this first Lab Notes entry, Senior Consultant Laura Kim shares her journey in trying to tell a better story through data visualization.
