Social Impact – it’s the new sexy phrase of the non-profit and social sector, but what does it mean? SIAA are hosting a joint event with The Social to provide you with an introduction to Social Impact.

This event will provide you with the opportunity to meet a number of professionals who measure and analyse social impact or social value as part of their job. But what is social impact and how do we measure it? Come along and find out!

Event Format:

We will listen to each speaker introduce themselves and their work before attendees get the chance to grill them in smaller groups. Every speaker will be on a “hot spot” while attendees get the opportunity to move between them and ask all the tough questions about social impact measurement!

There will also be the opportunity for informal chatting and networking.

Early Bird: £8 (ends 14th March)
