How-to Guide: Communicating Data for Impact

We see the immense power that data has to influence the world around us. To help make sense of all the various types of data you have at your fingertips, this how-to guide to communicating data for impact provides a multi-step process to approach and craft your data communications strategies.

We live in a world of data. In today’s increasingly digital age, data is being collected at an unprecedented rate through a variety of channels. Data serves as an essential aspect of communications, a key input for decision making, and a means to evaluate the performance of programs, projects, and policies. However, many people and organizations struggle to unlock the power of data or communicate it in the most effective way to achieve impact and inspire action. 

At Forum One, we recognize the power that effective communications have to bring data to life. We work with nonprofits, foundations, and government agencies to understand how data provides value, where it can be found, and what insights can be taken from it. This allows us to develop data stories and build interactive tools to communicate impact.

This how-to guide provides you an introduction to the impact and value of communicating data — including case study examples from NYU Langone Health’s Department of Population Health and the U.S. Department of Education’s National Assessment of Educational Progress (NAEP) — as well as practical steps that you can begin to take today.
