This is the fourth episode of the Ian Potter Foundation's Summer Listening Series, a four-episode podcast which shares insights from the philanthropic and NFP sides of the social sector.
In this episode, we present a re-enactment of Dr Squirrel Main's panel session (at the 2019 Australian Institute of Grantmakers conference). This panel session has representatives from not-for-profit and philanthropic sectors switching sides to role-play common conversations between grantmakers and grantees around evaluation and reporting. Through these role-plays, Dr Squirrel Main illustrates the false economy of not spending the necessary time and money on evaluating programs.
Moderator - Dr Squirrel Main, IPF Research & Evaluation Manager at The Ian Potter Foundation
Panellists - Sarah Hardy (RE Ross Trust), Sophie Boardley (Melbourne Theatre Company), Georgia Mathews (Australian Communities Foundation), Andrew Binns (World Vision Australia).
