    Infographics with attractive images and compelling data can reach a big audience. They give your data the power to rally support, inspire action, and drive impact. Tap into your data’s potential to create change with The Complete Infographic Toolkit for Nonprofits: From Data to Action.

    Over four Thursdays starting February 6, Idealware will help you see what kinds of data are best translated into infographics and find the stories hidden in the numbers. We’ll walk you through the practical steps of creating and using your infographic and look at examples of how other organizations created successful infographics. And best of all, we’ll help you develop your own infographic that you can begin using right away.


    Throughout the course, you will:

    • Identify what you hope to accomplish with an infographic and the ways you want to use it.
    • Learn techniques for finding useful data—both public and within your own organization.
    • Learn how to translate your data to speak to your audience
    • Consider visual techniques and strategies to display your information.
    • Review tools--including live demos-- that can help non-designers create infographic.
    • Walk through the practical considerations from concept to completion.
    • Explore the communications opportunities an infographic creates.
    • Walk away with a simple infographic you can use to help your organization start a conversation or promote a cause.
    • Also includes “homework review” in the sessions-- for those who send their homework in advance, we’ll provide feedback live in the sessions.

    4-part webinar series: February 6, 13, 20, and 27
    11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain).

    All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.

    • Webinar Series



    Clear, concise policies governing the use of technology can help protect your nonprofit against the risks of scams, malicious software, and bad data handling practices. Do you have guidelines in place to ensure appropriate staff use of social media? Does your staff know what to do in the event of a natural disaster such as a flood, fire, or ransomware attack? How do you manage staff use of phones or computers that mix personal and work data?


    If you don’t have written policies—and regular training to ensure that people understand them— your organization may face bigger risks than you think. Over three 90-minute webinars, we’ll walk you through the questions you should consider as you develop policies to protect your nonprofit.


    Throughout this course, you will:

    • Identify the risks your nonprofit faces and the level of risk with which you’re comfortable. 
    • Ask yourself important questions about what is and is not acceptable use of organization resources and tools. 
    • Learn to manage people and data to keep your organization safe from malicious attacks and honest mistakes. 
    • Walk through the pros and cons of whether staff members should use their personal devices for work. 
    • Consider the ways you can partner with your staff to protect organization data on personal devices. 
    • Review what you’ll need to do if your office experiences a major disaster such as flood, earthquake, or ransomware. 
    • Gain the knowledge you need to write smart policies to protect constituents, staff members, and your organization. 

    3-part webinar series: March 5, 12, and 19
    11:00 AM to 12:30 PM (Mountain).

    All registered participants are granted access to the recordings of each session. Participants who cannot attend any of the sessions due to scheduling conflicts will still have access to the toolkit presentation desks and handouts.

    Topic - HR Alphabet Soup: FMLA, ADA, USERRA, FLSA, and so on...

    While a seasoned HR Professional may understand all of these acronyms for employment legislation and compliance, the rest of us don’t deal with them regularly and can leave us a bit confused. With almost 200 federal laws governing employment, it is not a bad idea to get a basic overview of terminology and what they mean to help deal with employment issues that may arise.
