Data is a hot topic nowadays. There’s widespread agreement that nonprofits and businesses alike should use data to guide their activities, decisions, and priorities.
But just because society “believes” in data doesn’t mean we’re comfortable with it. If you’ve ever felt intimidated, confused, or hesitant when it comes to data, we want to help you build your comfort and competency with data so you can take advantage of this powerful tool.
Using Data to Build Credibility and Engage Your Audience
Over the summer, Westchester Children’s Association hosted a three-part webinar series titled “Using Data to Build Credibility and Engage Your Audience.” We were so pleased to see a great turnout and to hear positive feedback from attendees about how much they learned.
Today, we’re excited to announce that we’re making this webinar series freely available to all of our followers! All we ask in return is for you to do one of two things:
- Subscribe to the data blog so we can continue to send you helpful resources and tips, or
- Share this webinar series with someone who would benefit from it.
We want to express our thanks again to the Westchester Community Foundation and The John P. and Constance A. Curran Charitable Foundation for their support for this project.
