Interactive Online Program
If you work in CSR or philanthropy, at some point you’ve probably been told to “measure what matters” or that “what matters gets measured.” Yet how and what we measure often remains an elusive subject within corporate citizenship. From inputs to impacts, business ROI to community advancement, we know that measurement has a profound impact on the daily work of corporate citizenship practitioners. Join us for an Introduction to Impact Measurement: An ACCP Summit to learn about the current measurement landscape, an overview of the B4SI model, the need to incorporate equity into your measurement practices, and how to use measurement to show that CSR can be a contributing factor to achieving business goals.
Over the course of the Summit, we will cover:
- The current measurement landscape including what options exist to measure community and business impact and how to evaluate which option is best suited for your organization.
- An overview of the B4SI measurement model (formerly the London Benchmarking Group model).
- The importance of including equity in the impact measurement conversation.
- The business benefits of corporate citizenship and how to think about linking business goals to CSR strategies.
