What metrics can/should we use to measure the impact of our efforts on pluralism, equity and diversity? What models are out there? Why is this important? Who should be involved in this and is there a role for community engagement here? How long does an assessment take? What might we be looking at? What are funders looking for on this and do they have the best lens? Join us for an engaging and important sharing of ideas, concerns and experiences with leading practitioners in the field.
