Not Your Grandma’s Evaluation: Understanding Results for Community Change Work
How can evaluation serve us better? Conventional evaluation often leaves us tracking limited outputs for short term results on isolated programmatic interventions. We’re left wondering why we did the evaluation and not understanding what to do with the findings.
Join us for a conversation with international expert Mark Cabaj, President, Here to There and Associate, Tamarack Institute, whose energetic take on evaluation efforts will provide a comprehensive way to think about, plan for, and evaluate efforts designed to tackle complex issues. Kelci Price, Senior Director of Learning and Evaluation at the Colorado Health Foundation, will share about the emerging field of equitable evaluation, and why disrupting the current approach will help us capture and learn from the real outcomes that impact our Child Well-Being work.
From methodology to the values and principles that guide our evaluation efforts, this isn’t your grandma’s evaluation anymore!

About the United Way of Greater Atlanta InForum Partnership Engagement Series
The InForum Partnership Engagement Series is convening nonprofit, philanthropic and public partners to learn together as we seek to improve Child Well-Being in our 13-county region.
Partners gather at each InForum with some important facts top of mind: of the nearly 1.3 million children living in the Atlanta 13-county region, close to half a million live in communities with low or very low child well-being. United Way is looking to change that by improving the lives of more than 250,000 children across Greater Atlanta by 2027. This isn’t just United Way. This is all of us, non-profit leaders and community champions alike, coming together to change our community.
Each event pairs a national expert with a local influencer, creating a dialogue that blends best practices from across the country with local insight and experience. Collectively, attendees leave better equipped to keep fighting the good fight, having forged new connections to leverage experience, learnings and insights.
