An increasing number of organizations ranging from non-profits to purpose-driven corporations apply methods to empirically capture their social impact. In this seminar, students will participate in a series of workshops on the topic of social impact measurement together with a group of social organizations from the Rhine-Neckar Region. To apply the acquired knowledge, students will help the social organizations to develop their impact logic and their impact measurement approach. Student teams will collect and analyse data to assess the impact of the social organizations empirically.
Participants will not only gain a deep understanding of how to develop a social impact logic for a social organization but will also experience the practical implementation of social impact measurement.
