Program Evaluation for Human Rights Organizations 
Program evaluation can be a useful tool for evaluating and improving the effectiveness of human rights interventions. Knowing how to track outcomes and impacts is important for program planning and design and often helpful for securing donor support. Heléne Clark, Executive Director of ActKnowledge, will provide an introduction to tools, measures and processes for implementing program evaluation within an organization. Human rights professionals from Human Rights Watch and the International Center for Transitional Justice will discuss their experiences implementing program evaluation in their own organizations, highlighting some of the unique considerations involved in evaluating human rights programs. Attendees will also learn about opportunities to enlist pro bono experts through the AAAS On-Call Scientists initiative.

Hosted by:
