Learning from an evaluation framework: Lessons from AEGN’s review

Tue, 21 May 2024 10:00am - 11:00am AEST

The Australian Environmental Grantmakers Network (AEGN) is Australia’s peak membership organisation for environmental and climate philanthropy. They have 200+ members, united by their vision for a future where our climate is stable, and people and nature thrive.

In 2023, AEGN undertook the development of a new measurement, evaluation and learning framework. In this candid discussion, Charmaine will reflect on some of the challenges and complexities involved in the development of AEGN’s MEL framework,  data collection and organisational learning journey, in a way that will support the session participants in thinking through their own evaluation practices.

This event is for funders and grantmakers, especially staff working on MEL (measurement, evaluation and learning). You do not need to be a Philanthropy Australia member to attend this webinar.
