Overview

EVPA 10-Week Advanced Peer-learning Program on Impact Measurement and Management

Gain actionable insights and the tools to measure and manage your social impact! 

Ramp up your journey to positive change for people and planet, with an empowering, fresh and comprehensive learning experience

Build a peer network for ongoing support and collaboration 
 

Investors for impact – from foundations to impact funds to other impact-driven capital providers – will learn how to clarify their impact objectives and design a solid framework to measure and manage impact at different levels: on investees/grantees, on final beneficiaries/service users and on society.

Our innovative hands-on learning experience will support you in your journey to make impact measurement and management a driver of decision-making throughout the investment or grant-making journey.
