Webinar: Using Outcome Harvesting to Assess Efforts to Reduce Child, Early and Forced Marriages in India

Join us for a one-hour webinar with Margo Mullinax of the American Jewish World Service (AJWS) and Ricardo Wilson-Grau, the developer of outcome harvesting. Speakers will discuss their use of outcome harvesting to assess results achieved via AJWS’s child, early and forced marriage (CEFM) program in India. Speakers from AJWS will discuss how its decision to use outcome harvesting aligned with AJWS’s approach to research, learning and evaluation, including a dedication to feminist research and meaningful measures of progress when addressing issues that have complex root causes. Ricardo will then discuss the process of harvesting and analyzing outcomes, and what those outcomes revealed about the CEFM program.
