Engage, Inform, Persuade: Data Storytelling Workshop

In today’s data-driven world, effective communication of key metrics and insights is crucial for organizations to engage key audiences, make informed decisions, and build trust. Nonprofit leaders need to feel confident transforming data into engaging stories that resonate emotionally with a variety of groups, including staff, donors, or the broader community.

The goal of this workshop is to equip participants with knowledge, skills, and attitudes to transform data into compelling narratives for annual reports and other outward-facing communications.

Creating emotionally engaging data-driven content helps organizations foster stronger connections as well as garner greater support for their mission-driven work. It is also a skill that is connected to organizational learning and fostering a culture of inquiry and reflection.

This workshop is designed for nonprofit professionals at all levels who are eager to enhance their data communication skills. Whether responsible for reporting to donors, engaging volunteers, or conveying their organization’s impact to the community, this workshop offers participants an opportunity to strengthen and deepen their practice.

Participants will:

  • Review key concepts and terminology related to data, evaluation, and outcomes
  • Learn how to select and interpret relevant metrics for a variety of audience and materials
  • Discover best practices for data storytelling that drive change and support
  • Reflect on their organization’s unique challenges and objectives related to communicating with data
  • Connect with and learn from peers facing similar data communication challenges
