ARTD is sponsoring this two-day forum to bring together analysts, researchers, academics, strategic leaders and funders of social impact initiatives from government agencies, non-government organisations and the private sector to explore, learn and develop an action plan for the future of social outcomes measurement in Australia. This will help to ensure that the $250 billion spent on social purpose programs, interventions and policy in Australia each year delivers real value for people dealing with disadvantage. With our role in supporting outcomes measurement for government-funded programs across a range of policy sectors, we’re keen to support this collaborative approach to making sure evaluation, monitoring and research can best inform program design, targeting and implementation to achieve intended outcomes.
The conference, on November 20–21 in Sydney, is being organised by The Centre for Social Impact, the Australian Research Alliance for Children and Youth and the Social Impact Measurement Network Australia. You can access the full program here.
