What you’ll learn.

Day 2 (1 hour):

  • Thursday, December 9th at 10am PST

Our experts will guide you through the complete impact measurement journey - from initial understanding of outcomes, to creating your Theory of Change, all the way through to interpreting and presenting data. 

By the end of day 2, your team will have all the tools they need in order to start confidently incorporating impact measurement into your nonprofit’s operations, strategies and communications.
