Join PreventConnect for the next in our series of web conferences by build the case for prevention using data.  On June 8, we will hold the web conference “From Data to Prevention: Framing Sexual and Domestic Violence Prevention Impact From a Cost-Effectiveness Perspective.” Listen to Lisa Hoffman of Transforming Communities: Technical Assistance, Training and Resource Center and prevention practitioners discuss how to make the case for prevention using data.

In these tough economic times, have you ever wondered how to make the case that your sexual assault and domestic violence prevention program is cost-effective? Would you like to learn how to better state your program’s impact to funders and other decision-makers? In this web conference, we will share a simple, 6-step process for framing how to evaluate prevention work and how invested resources are producing meaningful outcomes for ending violence against women. Participants will increase their understanding of why cost-effectiveness thinking is relevant to their organizations and receive concrete tools to apply these concepts in practical ways (e.g. program planning, evaluation and fundraising efforts). Through this web conference, we will also work toward building a unified analysis and talking points that can help all our prevention programs become more sustainable.

When: Wednesday, June 8, 2011
