MMS Education Offers Free Webinar on Measuring CSR Education Programs
“If It Isn’t Measurable . . . Is It Successful?”
Tuesday, April 24 at 1:30 p.m. – 2:30 p.m. ET – View Here
In this free webinar, MMS Education and partner GENYOUth join Engage for Good to share real-world insights on using data to demonstrate efficacy and drive investment in CSR programs in schools and communities.
MMS Education works with clients to help reach, engage, and measure impact in the education market and, since its founding in 1977, has developed, activated, and managed significant CSR programs in education. Working together, MMS and GENYOUth have forged and grown impactful programs and initiatives around creating student-led cultures of wellness in our nation’s schools. They’ve done so by engaging leading corporations and foundations who share like goals to support key initiatives, measure and evaluate results, and leverage learnings to sustain success.
Led by MMS Education’s Karen Ellis, who will be joined by Ann Marie Krautheim, President & Chief Wellness Officer of GENYOUth, this webinar will offer insights into:
- The formative work, quantitative research, and follow-up that goes into launching any successful CSR effort
- The importance of using data to “tell a story” and create a compelling narrative — for partners, funders, stakeholders, and the public
- The ultimate satisfaction of demonstrating tangible impact
In addition, they will touch on:
- Case studies of impactful CSR partnerships: Fuel Up to Play 60, AdVenture Capital, and NFL Flag-in-School initiatives
- A partnership that speaks to the growing Hispanic/Latino student population
- An initiative that empowers girls as social entrepreneurs around nutrition and physical activity
- How these and other GENYOUth partnerships demonstrate the importance of different types of measurement approaches to shape, improve, promote, and sustain CSR initiatives
