The measuring social outcomes conference kicked off with Bessi Graham, Co-Founder of Benefit Capital. She brought to light how measurement for not for profit should not be viewed as an afterthought, but as a core part of the organisation.

“Organisations have the inability to be vulnerable, they often use measurement to only ever share good news stories” Bessi Graham

Measurement as Bessi mentioned should be about what we actually deliver to the cause/people that the organisation is fighting for.

We also had Louisa McKay the Executive Leader Community Services YMCA NSW talking about the various strategies that they are using at the moment in Measuring the program outcomes they are running

Louisa highlighted the need to Educate and Include while measuring the various outcomes, touching upon the Brightside program that YMCA NSW is running.

A little bit more about the Brightside program from Louisa:
