Event Details

Dear Colleagues and Friends,

Tech Networks of Boston (TNB) invites you to join us for a lively discussion on the use and misuse of data among human service providers and those who fund them.

We have a great panel for this session, composed of a human service funder and three human service professionals:

Catherine Dun Rappaport, United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley

Andrea Ryan, Saint Francis House

Jennifer Lowe, Crittenton Women's Union

Kara Sabalauskas, The Home for Little Wanderers

These panelists will share their insights about the challenges of:

Having varying definitions of the meaning and intention of outcomes measurement

Ensuring that data collection is done in ways that make sense.

They also will invite participants to compare notes about their own experiences, fostering discussion and collaborative reflection.

After participating in this session, we hope that participants will:

Appreciate more fully the pitfalls present in the use (and misuse) of outcomes measurement terms as well as with misaligned data collection and analysis efforts.

Have more insight into how they can foster an effective philosophy and practice of data collection and measurement within their own organizations.

Feel more confident about discussing data and evaluation practices with colleagues, organizational leaders (including board members), and funders.

Please note that session will NOT be a sales pitch for any product or service. The TNB Roundtable series is an educational opportunity for nonprofit professionals to learn along with their peers from other organizations.
We hope that you can join us for a lively conversation! Please respond to this invitation, to let us know whether you'll be attending. We are running a very popular series and have to track the head count carefully, so a definite YES or NO is real help to us.

Best regards from Deborah
