Why is visualizing data vital to sexual violence prevention? Part 2

We are continuing to explore lessons learned by participants from our effective data visualization training series we conducted with Dr. Stephanie Evergreen. I interviewed a few training participants to hear about how their data storytelling has shifted and the larger impacts they’ve experienced.

I had the opportunity to connect with Erin Chambers, Visual Communications Designer from the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic & Sexual Violence (MOCADSV) to learn how data storytelling is evolving for state coalition staff.

Why is visualizing data vital to sexual violence prevention? Part 1

When the pandemic hit and we weren’t able to meet in person like we usually do with our Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) partners, we realized we needed a new plan.  Part of the new plan included a fantastic partnership with Dr. Stephanie Evergreen to conduct a series of virtual trainings on effective data visualization. These trainings have forever changed the way we tell our prevention stories.

Self-Study Plan: Qualitative Evaluation (Intermediate)

This self-study guide, which is a part of the Evaluation Toolkit, focuses on increasing knowledge and skills around qualitative methods (focus groups, interviews, and other non-numerical data collection and evaluation). It includes up to 5 hours of online training options, as well as, in-person training opportunities. Using this plan will help learners understand the benefits and drawbacks of collecting qualitative data for program evaluation, several methods for collecting observational data, and basic tools for collecting and analyzing qualitative data.
