About this event

Demonstrating Value (DV) is a measurement framework that lets you take control of the data your organization collects and how it’s used. Most organizations like yours want to use data more effectively to make better decisions, support planning and demonstrate impact and value. A ‘Snapshot’ report, whether it's a dashboard, infographic or impact report, is a great communications tool to bring your organization’s data to life.

In this 1 ½ hour, interactive workshop we’ll design a Snapshot together using Piktochart, an on-line design tool available at low cost to nonprofits. Through this demonstration, participants will learn how they can design Snapshots themselves using the process outlined in the free-to-download Guide: Developing a Snapshot: Communicating Your Value. In addition to Piktochart, Snapshots can be designed in many software programs that nonprofits use regularly (like MS Word, Google Docs, Powerpoint, etc) as well as more specialized graphic design and 'data visualization' tools.

This workshop is directed to social purpose organizations (e.g. social enterprise, non-profit organization, impact business) and is suitable for executive directors, program staff, social entrepreneurs, communications staff and others directly involved in running organizations.

The workshop is facilitated by:

  • Bryn Sadownik, Consultant, Evaluation and Learning (Vancity Community Foundation)
  • Karen Gelb Research, Evaluation, Knowledge Mobilization Consultant

Feel free to share this invite link with others you think would benefit. Before the session, we’ll reach out to you with a few short activities that you can do ahead of time to get the most of this session.
