Using Story Maps to Engage Your Audience: Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps



Looking for a compelling way to share your message with people in person and online? Esri Story Maps offer a method for Cooperative Extension professionals to communicate information and engage their audience using a graphical and narrative approach with no coding experience needed. Story Maps can be a great way to tell you story whether their story features 15 maps, or even no maps at all. You can use Story Maps to connect with people before, at, and after a meeting, or with people you never get a chance to meet in person. This webinar covers the basics of Story Maps and features examples of how they can be used in outreach activities, whether or not your story will be map-based.

Although this session has a specific focus to the eXtension Diversity & Inclusion Issue Corps the content may be applicable and interesting to others who are welcome to join.
