One employee awarded a professional development grant was Shelly Maras. She is a research scientist with CHER who works on projects within Abacus Evaluation.

With the grant money, Maras will be taking an Intermediate Data Visualization Course through the Data Matters series. This is hosted by UNC’s Odum Institute for Research in Social Sciences and will take place from August 5-9, 2024.

Maras appreciates this opportunity to continue to advance her professional development. Specifically, she is excited to grow her data visualization skills through this award.

Since Maras is not always able to use her data visualization skills in her day-to-day work, she is excited to grow her ability. She believes that data visualization skills are important to foster, and is excited for what the course will teach her.
