Dashboards, Maps and Infographics: Tools to Measure & Communicate Impact

It’s well known that “a picture speaks a thousand words” and is a way to clearly and powerfully showcase the impact an organization is making and deliver key messages. In this workshop, participants will learn how to communicate information visually with dashboards, maps and infographics.

These state of the art Data Visualization tools transform complicated data so Board members, funders, Executive Directors and others can make instantaneous, informed decisions.

Data Visualizations are:

  • Uniquely powerful tools for communicating important information at a glance.
  • Easy to read, often on a single page.
  • Organizing and presenting the most important information from large amounts of data in an understandable format.
  • Summarizing information and focusing on changes and exceptions in the data.
  • Enabling Board members, staff, funders, and constituents to understand your impact and message.
