Session overview: During this session participants will have the opportunity to learn about an innovative approach to developing social impact logic models to help measure social impact and systems change. When many hear the words “logic model” they think of a beautiful neatly-formatted, nebulous visual which many organizations spend countless grueling hours creating, only to put it up on a shelf to collect dust and never truly use it as a results-based or data-driven map to help guide their work. The Progressive Outcomes Scale Logic Model (POSLM) is not your typical traditional style logic model. One of the major differences is that it was not created by any University or Institution. The idea for the logic model was conceived by people working and living in marginalized communities and brought to life by Quisha Brown. Although, the POSLM methodology was initially met with push back due to it not being found in academia or literature; today Humanistic Care’s POSLM development contracts have included organizations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, federal government organizations such as NeighborWorks America, The National Community Reinvestment Coalition and countless nonprofits across the country.
We invite you to join Quisha Brown, Consultant and co-founder of Humanistic Care, LLC and ask your questions as she describes what is known as the Progressive Outcomes Scale Logic Model (POSLM) approach to measuring social impact and systems change.
