A story can be found virtually anywhere, but a good story has several key elements to make it interesting for the audience. Data serves to help tell a story. It can be added to a narrative in order to explain the impact—a success, a challenge, or even a surprise—in greater detail. This session is designed to enable participants to build a story using data and analysis by identifying successes and communicating more effectively about the impact of the work.

At the end of the training, participants will have the ability to:
- Identify elements of a good story
- Understand the elements of a good data visualization
- Build skills to collaborate on data stories
