Amplify! Your Nonprofit’s Data Storytelling

October 15, 2020 at 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm


Amplify! Workshop Series

As part of our mission to give women, girls, and the organizations that serve them the tools they need to create change in our community, The Women’s Fund is excited to announce the return of our Amplify! workshop series.

Last year we surveyed the staff of women and girl-serving organizations across the four counties of Western Massachusetts to identify their capacity-building needs. Based on the results of that survey, the Women’s Fund is collaborating with expert trainers and coaches to offer capacity-building workshops focused on the needs of organizations serving women and girls.

With support from the Beveridge Family Foundation, the Women’s Fund is able to invest in the staff of local nonprofits by offering these high-quality trainings at a substantially reduced cost to participants.

Data Storytelling Virtual Workshop with #CTDataAcademy

Data stories can be a powerful tool to communicate data in a clear and compelling way that can lead to action. Yet too often the data we convey leaves our audience wondering what they should do or with more questions than answers. This workshop will give you foundational knowledge and skills to become a Data Storyteller.

In Data Storytelling you will learn:

  • What a “data story” is.
  • A process to create clear and compelling data stories.
  • How to combine your insights and findings with a visualization to help readers remember the story – and guide them to action.

Becoming a Data Storyteller is a practice. By applying what you learn in this workshop, you can learn to create data stories that will not only help readers remember what they’ve heard, but will help you guide your audience to action.

About The Connecticut Data Collaborative

The Connecticut Data Collaborative (CTData) is a public-private partnership empowering an ecosystem of data users by democratizing access to public data and building data literacy. CTData provides accessible public data that we process, curate and display in a user-friendly format on our online data portal, In addition to our data portal we help build data literacy skills through our workshops as part of the CTData Academy. The goal is to increase data literacy, build data capacity and enable organizations to use data effectively in evaluation and advocacy that impacts social lives. We are building a network of critical data users who employ quality data and strong analytics to improve their communities. Further we are the designated Connecticut Census State Data Center which means we serve as the liaison between the public and the Census Bureau.
