This workshop is being co-convened by CLU Center For Nonprofit Leadership, The Fund For Santa Barbara and the McCune Foundation.
Organizational leaders know the importance of assessing the impact they have on the communities they serve, but are often at a loss about how to do so. This foundational workshop is for organizational leaders in the philanthropy space who wish to engage in program evaluation, but wish to do so in an intentional manner that honors and embraces inclusivity. Inclusivity demands intentionality and crafting a data-gathering strategy to assess your organization’s impact. The inclusive evaluation framework presented in this workshop goes beyond the numbers and accounts for the intangible impact organizations have in their communities. Through its application, leaders may better communicate their value to funding sources and the public.
This workshop will walk attendees through an inclusive framework that will help guide their program evaluation efforts and navigate the challenges they’ll encounter in the various phases of the evaluation process. Attendees will walk away with a clear program evaluation strategy that aligns with their organization’s mission and considers current resources available to them.
- Participants will differentiate between standard frameworks of evaluation and the inclusive framework presented in this workshop.
- Participants will have an opportunity to evaluate their current program evaluation efforts against the integrative model presented.
- Participants will explore designing a data-gathering strategy based on the inclusive framework of the evaluation presented.
