Event description

Description

Spark makes it easy for young people to give to women's causes. However, how do we know our giving is having the impact we want? Join Spark and Smash Strategies for an opportunity to learn how to assess and measure the real impact of philanthropic investment. Discuss the importance of gender data and hear why it can be so hard to collect.

For example, you invest in a group that builds secondary schools in Tanzania in order to keep more adolescent girls in school. How do you measure the true impact of your investment? Beyond school enrollment, does the program delay a girl's marriage and first child? Does a girl feel empowered to use her education and go to college? Does the community value her in a different way?

With the help of this workshop, you will find ways to answer these questions and better navigate the social impact and development space.
