Next Generation Evidence Approaches in Philanthropy and Practice
Tuesday, November 29, 2022 | 4:00PM – 5:15PM EST
Funders play a key role in the next generation evidence ecosystem—working in equal partnership with practitioners to advance shared impact goals. However, the dominant approach to evidence building and evaluation in the social and education sectors remains insufficient and inequitable. Funders too often demand evidence on their terms without considering what is required for practitioners to provide it, or whether that evidence is helping support improved outcomes rather than an exercise in compliance. In this candid, interactive conversation, hear from funders and practitioners who are working to shift to a more equitable and effective approach by empowering community learning, embracing new technologies, and incorporating equitable design principles into their work.
