GlobalPDX Lunch & Learn – “Interactive Workshop on the Power of Evaluation” with Alli Shurilla
05/11/2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
When you hear the word “evaluation,” what comes to mind? Requirements from funders? An audit? Scrambling to track down information for a report? What if I told you evaluation could be a tool to support your own work while also making your funders and higher-ups happy?
Join us for an interactive workshop to learn how you can apply simple evaluation techniques in your organization that truly support your work while giving those who want to see your “data” what they need. This workshop will walk you through how to take simple steps to incorporate evaluation into your work in a way that is easy and integrated into your everyday work. You will learn how to use what you already know and are already doing to learn more about your work, do it better, and communicate your impact. These skills will not only help you have a better understanding of your own work and impact but will help you translate what you learn into language that will resonate with existing funders, potential donors, and your community.
