Voices from the Field

  • As soon as our community-wide reading proficiency initiative was introduced to the Lectio framework, I immediately realized its power to help both the philanthropic and nonprofit provider community evaluate programs in terms of design, effectiveness and potential for impact. As funders, we are total believers in the process and have seen our community providers embrace it and learn from it as well.

  • The institute was one of the most powerful professional development sessions I have ever attended.  We were provided with a real tool to evaluate our work (PDET) and engaged in thoughtful and intense discussions around programming. I realized that we need to change workplace practices on how to think more strategically when developing and implementing programs, all to ensure they are ones that lead to real impact and legitimate outcomes.
