I commit myself to improving (statistical) numeracy in society through outreach activities, like explaining statistical concepts in blog posts, discussing my work on national radio, and developing a teaching package on misleading statistics. I encourage and facilitate other statisticians to do the same by arranging workshops and training for them as co-founder of the statistical blog and Media Expert Group of the Netherlands Society for Statistics and OR (VVSOR). Additionally, I am one of the authors of the Grafiekpolitie who debunk misleading graphs on the factcheck website Nieuwscheckers.nl.
