Discovering Nonprofit Impact Using a Racial Equity Lens - Part II: Data Collection & Reporting - Recorded
The second part of this series will pick up on our previous need assessments discussion. We will analyze a sample results data report from a needs assessment. Many organizations collect needs assessment data, yet struggle with how to use the data in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
In an effort to create impact in racial disparities, organizations must begin to place more emphasis on the type of data they are collecting as well as the type of indicators they are monitoring. Without this, organizations can easily become trapped in a never ending cycle of collecting irrelevant and subjective survey data just for the sake of being able to say that they have data.
You will learn:
- How the development of key performance indicators (KPI’s) derives from needs assessment data
- Strategies for developing an ongoing data collection and reporting process which allows organizations to effectively track change over time on key performance indicators (KPI’s)
- About the critical thinking and reasoning involved in developing a theory of change which succinctly explains how an organization plans to significantly impact needs revealed from the needs assessment; while remaining realistic and true to the capacity and work scope of the organization.
