Roundtable on the Future of Impact Management
Social Value US is organizing a Roundtable on the Future of Impact Management, picking up on our prior convenings the SOCAP Sidecar and ImpCon. This is a convening of parties with significant commitments to the profession of impact management, to engage deeply on key questions such as:
Updates on milestones, trends and latest work: what each of us are doing to build the impact management profession
What do we wish others would acknowledge, endorse and support more actively than they are doing today?
What are we doing that is competitive, and rightly so?
Where should we act collectively to remove friction and accelerate momentum?
Impact Management Glossary
Impact management brings together different communities of practice who have not until now intersected often enough to develop a fully shared lexicon. As a result, today many terms being used mean different things to different people, or different terms are used to describe the same thing. The Impact Management Glossary strives to reduce this confusion by pointing out what the term means when defined according to a certain community of practice or point of view. Providers and recipients of investment capital, those who evaluate social and environmental performance or impact and the interested public can all make use of this glossary.
At IMPCON, participants worked together to develop an action agenda that advanced the state of the art of impact measurement. Since the convergence, the agenda has been advanced by Social Value US, the American Evaluation Association's Social Impact Measurement Topical Interest Group, and our members and collaborators.
