Data Visualization

Using Graphics to Tell Your Story

About this session

Data visualization is the graphical representation of information and data using visual elements like charts, graphs and dashboards. The use of data visualization provides an accessible way to see and understand trends, outliers and patterns in data. Nonprofit accounting data can be especially hard to work with. This session is designed to help you prepare analytics that result in effective data presentations for key stakeholders. You will learn how certain industry benchmark ratios can lead to unintended consequences and unclear presentations. You will also see sample visualizations to determine how to showcase some of the various best practices.
