The Annie E. Casey Foun­da­tion will host a webi­nar on Wednes­day, Aug. 24, 2022, to help orga­ni­za­tions and part­ners devel­op a the­o­ry of change that advances results for chil­dren, young peo­ple, fam­i­lies and communities.

Dur­ing the ses­sion, view­ers will learn about the Foundation’s four-part Devel­op­ing a The­o­ry of Change guide, which intro­duces an overview of key con­cepts, step-by-step instruc­tions, doc­u­men­ta­tion tem­plates and the­o­ry of change exam­ples.

The webi­nar, called Devel­op­ing a The­o­ry of Change,” will also explore the ben­e­fits of build­ing a the­o­ry of change and tell how orga­ni­za­tions can use the­o­ry of change graph­ics to engage key audiences.


Date and time: 1 p.m. ET, Wednes­day, Aug. 242022

Pan­elists include:

  • Suzanne Barnard, ses­sion mod­er­a­tor and direc­tor of the Evi­dence-Based Prac­tice Group with the Annie E. Casey Foundation
  • Cameron Hostet­ter, con­sul­tant for ORS Impact
  • Gevonee Ford, exec­u­tive direc­tor of the Net­work for the Devel­op­ment of Chil­dren of African-Amer­i­can Descent

The webi­nar is part of Casey’s Lead­ing With Evi­dence webi­nar series, which exam­ines how lead­ers, researchers and pro­gram devel­op­ers can col­lab­o­rate to advance the use of evi­dence and, ulti­mate­ly, improve the lives of chil­dren, fam­i­lies and communities.
