This is the third session in a 3 part series of online workshops about impact management for VCSE sector organisations from the Yorkshire, Humber and Lincolnshire regions of England.
The series is being run by Inspiring Impact delivery partner SVUK in collaboration with our Inspiring Impact Regional Partners for the Yorkshire, Humber and Lincolnshire regions: Social Value Engine, and SEYH (Social Enterprise Yorkshire and Humber).
This session will focus on ‘Acting for impact – Working practices and organisational culture’.
In the first session we looked at the importance of data for decision making.
In the second session, we looked at different data gathering methods, and approaches.
In this final session, we will discuss how to embed impact practice into our organisations as a core part of how we manage our activities. During a year of extreme and fast paced change all of our organisations have had to adjust in many different ways.
This session will look at our organisational working practices, with practical case study examples from organisations about their own impact management practice, the challenges organisations have faced and how they have overcome these, and opportunities and benefits that have been discovered through this practice.
This session will be include discussion on:
- engaging our different stakeholder groups to own and be a part of our impact management
- developing, or improving our relationships with different partners using our impact data
- a learning culture: looking at understanding our impact and using this data as a core part of continuous improvement
- an accountability culture: embracing being accountable for the impact that we have in peoples lives
The session will be 1 hour 30 mins long and involve group discussions, resource sharing and action planning.
This is the final session in the series.
The session will be run through Zoom, and registration is through the below link:
