How to Use Data Visualization to Communicate Your Impact Narrative
Submitted by: Rahul Shah | Sattva Consulting


Funders, board members, partners, staff and other stakeholders are increasingly becoming more rigorous and outcome-focused. Leveraging data to articulate and communicate a nonprofit’s impact narrative, in addition to traditional story telling, is becoming more of a necessity than a differentiator. This session will cover fundamental elements of storytelling and technical aspects of data visualization, further supplemented by 2-3 case studies.
