What We Did:
Created a consistent format and used consistent vocabulary across documents
Highlighted processes and relevant steps relevant to each audience
Used visuals when possible to organize ideas and reduce text density
Nonprofit staff, government employees, and community partners benefit from clear, effective communication, too!
Tailor content to the main audience whenever possible, especially when talking about processes.
A quick overview document can be a helpful way to complement a presentation and highlight key points.
