How to Engage Local Communities with Data

(This webinar already took place. Request access to the recorded webinar below.)

Publishing a dataset, or even creating a visualization, doesn't ensure your data will be used to achieve social impact. Raising awareness of an issue, informing policymaking, and empowering communities or individuals takes much more!

The act of communicating and engaging with data is no easy task, but there are tips we can all integrate into our work. 

Andy Krackov, Vice President of Partnerships & Strategy at LiveStories, will share the lessons he's learned from a dozen years of close collaboration with local communities nationwide to show you how to leverage your data and turn them into actionable information. 

The webinar will cover topics such as:

  • The importance of integrating stories with data

  • How to work with communication staff to improve what you publish

  • Why it’s important to always talk to your users before (and after) you create content.
