Evaluation and Learning in the Social Sector: How Data and Strategic Thinking Can Drive Greater Social Impact!

Introduced by: Martin Clavijo

As the social sector invests in different strategies and initiatives, stakeholders often have questions about the work’s impact. Like in the for-profit sector, gathering relevant, rigorous, and timely data is crucial in answering these questions and supporting social innovators’ informed decisions to drive towards greater impact. Data can also play an important role in ensuring accountability to intended beneficiaries, funders, and other stakeholders. This presentation will provide an overview of why evaluation is important in the social sector, how it helps organizations learn from and improve their work, and how ORS Impact approaches evaluation to help partners accomplish their missions. ORS Impact is a Seattle-based consulting firm with three decades of experience partnering with social innovators nationwide to amplify their social impact through measurement, evaluation, and learning.

The annual BBRC Dine Around is coming up!  This is an opportunity to gather in small group setting and enjoy a scrumptious dinner in a Rotarian home.  Get to know your fellow Rotarians in a more intimate setting.

Last year we had the snow storm of the decade so only one of the groups actually met.  This year, since we have  already had the snow storm of the decade, we should be good for the rest of the year.  Dates to be determined!

We will be putting out signup sheets to see who is interested in attending as a guest (with a guest) or as a host (with the mostest).  Stay tuned!

Contact Margie Burnett or Ann Norman if you have any questions or if you want to help out.
