Equitable Evaluation: Why Data and Measurement Should Center Nonprofit Values


Conference room at the offices of Nutter

The Social Innovation Forum (SIF) is excited to invite you to our upcoming program, Equitable Evaluation: Why Data and Measurement Should Center Nonprofit Values, on Thursday, September 29th from 9:30-11:00am. We are looking forward to convening this program in person at the offices of Nutter, located at 155 Seaport Blvd, Boston, MA 02210. We are consciously limiting the number of attendees to 40, to allow for physical distancing and to ensure an environment where all can feel welcome to contribute. Light refreshments will be provided. 


More About the Event

This event is being jointly hosted by SIF’s Funder Education Program and the Alumni/Nonprofit Network. We’re excited to have Julia Gittleman, PhD of Mendelsohn, Gittleman & Associates, LLC leading the discussion. We’re hopeful that this conversation will encourage thoughtful shifts in how philanthropy approaches measurement and evaluation, and in how funders and nonprofits navigate building and sustaining equitable partnerships. Part of the SIF process is cultivating an intentional, meaningful relationship between track partners and Innovators. In fact, deep relationships between funders and grantees across the sector are the bedrock of our work. We encourage folks to attend this event in nonprofit/funder pairs. Funders might consider inviting an Innovator they've met through SIF, or another grantee they are building a relationship with. Similarly, nonprofit leaders might consider inviting their SIF Track Partner, or another funder. Our goal is to create opportunities for continued conversation about equitable evaluation beyond this space.
