VIRTUAL: Results-based Accountability with an Equity Lens
Training for Community and Health Impact Grantee Applicants

Tuesday, March 31, 2020 1:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Please note: Attendance at Pre-Proposal information sessions is not required as part of your application.

This workshop is designed to provide grant applicants with information and practice opportunities on the use of the Results-based Accountability (RBA) framework.  The workshop will cover an overview of the RBA framework and the ways it can be used with an equity lens to improve outcomes for populations that have the greatest needs.   

These sessions will provide an opportunity to:

  1. Learn or refresh on key concepts of the Results-based Accountability (RBA) framework, particularly using an equity lens
  2. Participate in a RBA Turn the Curve discussion focused on one of the SFCF priority population indicators within the Area of Impact for spring grant cycle - Educational Success & Career Pathways.
  3. Explore the ways that your organization contributes to turning the curve;
  4. Discuss opportunities to align efforts with other partners; and
  5. Learn how to use RBA to identify relevant performance measures that demonstrate the effectiveness of your programs and services.

Results-Based Accountability™ (RBA) is a disciplined way of thinking and acting to improve entrenched and complex social problems. Communities use it to improve the lives of children, youth, families, adults. RBA is also used by organizations to improve the effectiveness of their programs. Developed by Mark Friedman and described in his book Trying Hard is Not Good Enough, RBA is being used in all 50 United States and in more than a dozen countries around the world to create measurable change in people’s lives, communities and organizations.

RBA uses a data-driven, decision-making process to help communities and organizations get beyond talking about problems to taking action to solve problems. It is a simple, common sense framework that everyone can understand. RBA starts with ends and works backward, towards means. The “end” or difference you are trying to make looks slightly different if you are working on a broad community level or are focusing on your specific program or organization.

Michele Lis is strategic planning and facilitation consultant with fifteen years experience working on results-driven planning and performance.  Her work has included training and facilitation for organizations using both the Results-Based Accountability and Challenge Centered Transformation methodologies to assist organizations in developing measures to improve performance results.  Prior to starting her own business, Michele worked for nonprofit organizations, colleges and in the private health care sector.
