Measure what matters. Proving the success of your programs is critically important today, and anecdotal stories aren’t enough. The Social Impact Measurement Certificate is designed for individuals who want to lead their organization’s efforts in evaluating or tracking the performance of their programs. It will help you understand how social impact measurement fits into your management structure, design an evaluation, learn to collect data to tell your organization’s story, and analyze and use the information you collect.
