Session 3: Evaluating Your Impact: Measuring & Communications Value
DATE: MAY 26TH & JUNE 16TH, 1-2:30PM
FACILITATORS: CARI PATTERSON & KAREN PYRA
What do we mean by impact? How do we decide what impacts we want to measure? Who needs to be involved in the decision-making process on what we measure and how? Who needs to know about our impact and how will they learn about it? These are the kinds of questions this session will explore. In our time together we will focus on:
- The role of evaluation and the evaluator
- Understanding what we (and our stakeholders) mean by impacts
- How do we know if we are having an impact
- Evaluation planning
- Collecting and making sense of information
- Sharing what we have learned
Part of a five-session series
The COVID-19 pandemic and other complexities have changed the context and needs for the social sector.
Back in March 2021, the Community Sector Council of Nova Scotia (CSCNS) partnered with Inspiring Communities (IC) to launch a survey to gather data and information on the needs of the sector. Together, we recognized the need to offer capacity building opportunities based on the current and future context. We also understand that community connection and support are essential, especially during times of crisis; we aim to facilitate such connection while offering meaningful, shared learning opportunities and resources that align with evolving sector needs.
The results from the survey helped identify the sector needs and inform the five capacity building sessions. We invite you to join us for capacity building workshops that will further skill, knowledge and build opportunities for people and organizations to create positive impact across Nova Scotia.
The 2-part capacity building sessions will have an emphasis on building peer-to-peer relationships (cohort learning) and collaborative learning while offering tools and resources to help you implement the learning within your organization or community.
