In our Scaling Solutions toward Shifting Systems initiative we have discovered great interest in exploring more deeply the question of how to monitor and evaluate systems change, since this is different from assessing a specific project, program, or grant. In response to this, we are organizing a 3-day workshop for funders to explore this theme with the intention of improving our understanding and practices in this area. We have invited outstanding, thoughtful experts on evaluation of systems change who will help shape and lead the workshop to create a very rich learning experience: Meg Hargreaves http://www.norc.org/Experts/Pages/margaret-hargreaves.aspx Glenn Page http://www.sustainametrix.com/glenn-page Zenda Ofir http://zendaofir.com/biography/ Between them, they have designed and evaluated strategy on a wide range of themes in systems change and transformation, including climate change, the food/water/energy nexus, child protection systems, disparities in health care, juvenile justice, and neuroscience and how trauma effects early child development. Participants are expected to cover their own travel, accommodation, and food costs. And we will require a bit of pre-work - answering some questions about each participant's own background and work examples - so that we have a rich palette to draw upon from the very start of the workshop. BOOKING DEADLINE: All reservations must be confirmed via this Eventbrite page by Friday 12 July in order to secure a room at LaKota Oaks.
