Interactive Training Webinar on Impact Measurement Using Sinzer
"Reporting Social Impact. What to Say" - Open Webinar
When: September 28th - from 3pm to 4pm (GMT+1)
Finding difficult to summarize all the information of your social impact measurement in a readable report? Are you afraid of missing some of the key findings due to lack of space? Katherine Ruff, winner of Stone Soup's Award on Research in Social Innovation, will lead a practical and dynamic webinar that will ease the way to report writing. Aimed at those who do social impact measurement, evaluators, communication professionals and anyone involved in social impact report writing, the goal of this webinar is to provide useful tools to those who take on the challenge of summarizing their social impact findings.
Join us for the first of our new season's webinar series, a free and open training that will cover the results of Katherine Ruff's winning research "Materiality in Charity Reporting" and its practical implications.
"When it comes to charities reporting their social results, there is a similar problem: of all the performance information that could go into a report, what should go in the report? One of the things my research demonstrated is that the selection of ‘what matters’ isn’t obvious. The important bits of performance information don’t jump out; they are selected. And, not surprisingly, different selections of information affected how effective the charity appeared. My research demonstrates that it matters what we decide matters. Materiality matters", Katherine Ruff.
