About the webinar

This Webinar is a one-hour session ideal for Monitoring and Evaluation professionals who are interested in learning more about best practices for data visualization. There are more tools than ever for visualizing data, but designing visualizations that help spur action, inform our audiences, and support better outcomes for beneficiaries remains challenging.

In this session, we’ll step back from specific tools and the mechanics of visualizing data to think about the principles of effective data visualization.

We won't present how to use specific tools to create visualizations but some of the key points we will cover are:

  • Identifying your audience
  • Choosing goals for your visualization
  • Choosing the right format to achieve your goals
  • Ensuring that visualizations faithfully and effectively communicate your data

Is this Webinar for me?

  • Are you an M&E practitioner responsible for designing reports and visualizations to tell the story of your programmes and your organization?
  • Do you wish to get a deeper understanding of visualizations and visual storytelling?
  • Are you interested in helping your organization share the correct information, avoid common pitfalls and tell compelling stories based on the data you collect?

Then, watch our Webinar!
