Yesterday, we began a discussion between Simon Anderson, senior SROI analyst with Social Asset Measurements and Garth Yule, manager of evaluation and community impact with Vancity Community Foundation to discuss the compatibility of Demonstrating Value and Social Return on Investment (SROI). Today we will continue that conversation by discussing how DV can help communicate the results of a SROI analysis, and, the preliminary steps required to complete a SROI assessment or work through the DV process.
We sat down with Simon Anderson, senior SROI analyst with Social Asset Measurements and Garth Yule, manager of evaluation and community impact with Vancity Community Foundation to find out how Demonstrating Value and SROI can work together to provide a deeper understanding of social impact.

A world that will remember how we measured up.
