EPIP Bay Area is hosting an upcoming program – Evaluating Your Impact – that will be offered in BOTH San Francisco and Menlo Park. Please make sure you register for the correct location! Here are the details and RSVP links for both:
Update: The 2013 EPIP Conference Debrief Reflection and Social that was to follow the SF workshop has been postponed. Due to a successful 2013 EPIP Conference ending this past weekend, most of the attendees returned home and are playing catch up while others continued onto the Council on Foundations conference in Chicago. We will reschedule this event to a later date and look forward to sharing reflections and updates at that time. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. Look out for future communications about the rescheduled date.
About the Workshop:
Evaluating Your Impact
This workshop will introduce you to models and methods for evaluating impact.
How are you measuring your impact? Are you telling the full story of your program or organization’s achievement? How do you know you are making the impact you intend? How can you amplify your impact by using evaluation?
Workshop participants will take away:
• How to think strategically about impact evaluation
• Examples of techniques and experiences from programs across North America
• How to develop leadership capacity through evaluation
• Practical ideas for using findings to engage audiences and shape future program development
