Tools and Resources for Assessing Social Impact


Social Impact Assessment (SIA)

The SIA provides a method for measuring the social impact of organizations for a social investor. It has three major steps: definition of the venture's social value proposition using a "theory of change," quantification of social value by listing the top three social indicators most strongly correlated with desired social outcomes and that can be tracked as part of normal business operations, and monetization of the social impact value the venture aims to create over the next 10 years.
