Much of social impact measurement work focuses on measuring the outcomes of a single project, program or intervention on a defined set of stakeholders. But how do you take the pulse of a whole community?
At this webinar, we will hear from three speakers who have done just that. Come armed with your questions. There will be much to learn!
