On June 15th, the Building Movement Project and Innovation Network presented a webinar on “The Emerging Framework for Civic Engagement Evaluation” on behalf of Philanthropy for Active Civic Engagement (PACE). In response to the call for better tools to assess the progress and frame the impact of civic engagement, the BMP has partnered with groups like Innovation Network to collect these tools and, more importantly, uncover a useful framework for how groups can think differently about how to approach civic engagement evaluation.
During this well-attended (over 80 online participants!) and well-received webinar, Ehren Reed of Innovation Network and Trish Tchume of the Building Movement Project offered an introduction to the emerging framework and most promising tools for evaluating civic engagement.

We also invite you to download Evidence of Change: Exploring Civic Engagement Evaluation, which looks at how organizations currently view their relationship with impact measurement, and presents a brief summary of key findings that came out of our recent Civic Engagement Evaluation Summit.
