Impact Measurement & Management
with a Gender Lens
Friday, 13 December 2019
9:00am – 10:00am (GMT+8)
A strong impact measurement and management (IMM) practice is central to being an effective social investor, and in recent years, several IMM approaches have emerged to address this need. Join this webinar to hear from AVPN member, the Global Impact Investing Network (GIIN), on its work to help investors translate their intentions into impact through IRIS+, a comprehensive yet personalised global IMM framework. This webinar will also address how investors are working together to develop relevant and practical metrics, with a spotlight on gender-lens investing.
At the end of the webinar, participants will understand:
- How to use IRIS+ to obtain clear, credible, consistent impact data to inform decision-making and drive greater impact results
- How IRIS+ helps align IMM practices with existing norms and frameworks (e.g. SDGs, five dimensions of impact)
- The economic and social benefits of applying a gender lens to existing work through real case examples
