Using Data to Make a Difference

Season 1, Episode 1747,   Jan 17, 2020, 05:48 PM

Measuring the return on investment for communications and marketing initiatives is essential across all industries today but how does data-driven decision making differ for non-profits, especially for those operating in the public policy arena? Today’s guest on WVU Marketing Communications Today is Ann DeFabio Doyle, Vice President of Communications for The Pew Charitable Trusts, a non-partisan, global research and public policy organization. Ann and host Susan Jones will discuss how mission-driven non-profits use data to make a difference in their work and how Pew has created new communications initiatives to reach key audiences.
