Program Evaluation Community Open Mic [March 2, 2022]

The first meeting of 2022 was an Open Mic session on the challenges members are facing in evaluating their programs as well as some solutions to these challenges.

The Program Evaluation Community has moved from exploring tools to collect and analyze outcome data, to learning more about how to measure not only outcomes of your funding but impact as well. From the impact of the research you fund, to the impact of the programs you have launched, and even measuring organizational impact. Many HRA members shared challenges and ideas for measuring impact. The discussion of  evaluating impact will continue with a deep dive into using Logic Models to develop programs and evaluate impact via a session at the HRA Spring Members Meeting.  From there, will continue learning from each other’s experiences about the power of logic models, and other ways members evaluate impact.
