Writing for the Web and Social Media
Wednesday, June 28 from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Writing content for your website or social media is very different from writing for other types of communications because of the way people read and use the Web. Learn how to improve your written website and social media content, increase your site’s usability as well as readability and improve the effectiveness of your online communication channels.

Instructor: Cindy Leonard, Bayer Center
Fee: $125 ($115 if paid online)

Telling an Impactful Story with Data
Friday, June 30 from 9 a.m. – noon

Finding stories in data can be a challenge. Where should you turn for sources? How can you confidently report them? This workshop will introduce the typical kinds of stories that can be found in data, provide an introduction to economic impact and the types of data used in an analysis, and give you practice in finding your own data stories. You’ll feel more confident “reading” datasets to uncover the stories they contain. A great resource for grant writers, project evaluators, strategic planning, or anyone interested in learning more about the communities you serve.

Come and learn how to access and extract community data, hone your data-storytelling skills, and understand how economic impact
reporting can benefit your organization!
