Intermediate Excel Tips & Tricks

In this skillshare, Reed will offer a quick refresher of Excel basics, and
then introduce and discuss several tools. He'll provide template
spreadsheets with dummy data to practice on.  Skills include powerful pivot
tables, colorful conditional formatting, link with lookup/Offset/Match, hop
with hyperlinks, clever charts, and fancy formulas.  Reed will also be open
to special requests, such as gathering data with Google Forms or digging
into data with the Analysis toolpak.  Please bring a computer to follow
along if possible. Expect to have a fun:)


Reed Miller is a queer transman on the far left with a soft spot for
spreadsheets.  He holds a BS and M.Eng in environmental engineering and an
MS in technology and policy.  Currently working as a research specialist at
the MIT Materials Systems Lab, his work in environmental impact modeling
involves hundreds of spreadsheets, which are in decorated in various hues
of purple.  For the past several years, he's volunteered with Black and
Pink, often managing and configuring  a database of several thousand LGBTQ
prisoners. Currently, he's working to start Electric Slides Cooperative, a
conference presentation editing service.

Socializing for Justice - www.sojust.org

Since 2006, we've been building this great sandbox where we can bring
progressives of all stripes together and try out new ideas in this
"Movement Moment". Spaces like this are crucial as we start to reframe and
build new visions for our movement(s).

SoJust hosts events that draw progressives of all stripes that share common
values but may work on different issues. We host monthly socials that allow
for the possibility of cross-issue connections and run a monthly Skillshare
Series, hosted by The NonProfit Center*, which increases our individual
capacity for movement building.

With over 2300 members and 7 years of creating a diverse cross-issue
community in Boston (160+ events!), Socializing for Justice is the best
place to find the great people, organizations and community you're looking
for while putting the SOCIAL back in social justice.

YES, WE MEAN YOU. We've got members of all ages, races, genders, sexual
orientations, levels of activism and professions. We hope you see someone
like yourself and meet someone you otherwise wouldn't have.
