Many of our current tools for tracking social impact are overly burdensome and focused on minutiae that take creative time and energy away from the field. More often than not, we privilege quantitative metrics in the sector, often because they are easier to measure, but they don’t tell the whole story—especially when thinking about longer term societal change processes, like increasing human rights and eradicating racial and gender inequalities, which takes longer than 2-3 years to achieve. This means that we might not be funding the right change-makers that will truly transform the world and end social, racial and gender inequalities. We can and must do more.
We have built a platform to make it easy for users to track trends lying latent with stories, and other text data formats, so they can be tracked along with other quantitative metrics. We help organizations think through what data could be useful and a catalyzing force for good in communities. We also help our clients think through institutionalizing processes for creating of cultures of learning and offer a platform so users can easily share lessons across different groups.
