What did Upward Scholars want to talk about?

How best to use the data we have to communicate our program's success.

Additional Context

We provide scholarships to adult immigrants so they can attend community college and get better jobs. We have extensive data, now stored in Excel, that illustrate our success but the graphs we created are confusing and do not reflect that value of our work. For more about our work, see the Impact section of our Web site: http://www.upwardscholars.org

What did they have to say?

Marian is obviously extremely knowledgeable in her field and asked insightful questions; then provided me rough sketches of possible ways of representing our impact. The next step will be a second phone call where she explains in greater detail what she envisions.

Good experience -- Elizabeth was organized and prepared, sent materials in advance and was clear about her needs. I provided some initial ideas during a phone call that lasted about 30 minutes, then followed up with some additional suggestions in writing.
