Theory of change: What it is, and what people think it is

March 2, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST



Funders, consultants, and other stakeholders often ask about an organization’s theory of change, but there is much confusion over what this tool is and what it’s supposed to accomplish. This presentation introduces a framework for understanding both what a theory of change is and how we often misinterpret it. Attendees will leave the presentation with knowledge of how to design a complete theory of change and how to make sense of the confusion surrounding this concept.
