Graphic Presentation of Data for Grantwriters:
Why, How, and Pitfalls to Avoid

PSGA Panorama: Intensive Training Option #2
8:45 - noon, Nov. 1, 2019

We will examine some of the choices that graphics professionals make when presenting data. This workshop will demonstrate the power of using charts, maps, tables, and diagrams to tell your organization’s story. Understanding these choices will help you become as strategic, articulate, and ethical with the content and format of graphic presentations of data as you are with words.

In this workshop you will learn to:

  • Take control of which data you decide to include in infographics you create for proposals, reports, or site visits.
  • Recognize choices you are making (either consciously or unconsciously) when you shape numbers into charts.
  • Choose which type of chart is best to use for different types of data. 
  • Consider ethical issues.
