Data helps us tell the best stories. And to know what stories to tell. And many foundations require that we report back data. While surveys are a common way for nonprofits to collect that data, surveys often miss important sections of the people we serve.
In this session, we will examine evaluation systems and best practices for organizations that work with oppressed and excluded groups. Our goal will be to create a framework for collecting data that is informed by alternative methodologies. And you'll learn new ways of talking about data to foundations that will advance social justice instead of further marginalizing people we serve.
You'll leave this session with:
- An understanding of the key terminology and resources to shape language around marginalized groups
- Guidelines for data collection, reporting, and developing tools for understanding impact on our clients
- Steps for putting best practices into action
