Measuring Social Change & Media: Beyond BS

#sxsw #peernpsm

RSVP Required - This workshop will dramatically demonstrate how the practice of measurement, social media, social change, and networks have evolved over the past 5 years. In 2009, the "Social Media ROI Poetry Slam" SXSW lead to a book "Measuring the Networked Nonprofit." The thesis: For nonprofit organizations there are two key processes that lead to social change: To become networked, and to use measurement. The book's co-authors, Beth Kanter and KD Paine will facilitate an updated of the original poetry-slam session with the same four nonprofit leaders about they have used networked strategies and measurement to improve results and transform failure into success.

Please pick up a copy of "Measuring the Networked Nonprofit" and read chapters 3 and 4. (The book will be used a textbook for the workshop.)

What to Bring:
Laptop, mobile phone, pens, pencil, camera.
