In the 10th anniversary year of Giving Women, the Zurich Chapter of Giving Women invites you to our second workshop of the year in Zurich.

Why Data Matters? 
Monitoring & Evaluation,
a process that helps improve performance and achieve results

In this workshop, we will take a closer look at the importance of monitoring and evaluation and why these processes are critical for building strong and evidence-based programs.

Catharina Baltus, Head of Development Switzerland for Room to Read, will talk about why Room to Read is putting data at the heart of their program design and how the organization uses data to improve Room to Read’s program quality.

Dhun Davar, Program Director at UBS Optimus Foundation, shares with you, why from the perspective of a funder, to measure is to know. She will give you insights into what large foundations like Optimus Foundation measure, what in their point of view makes a program successful and under which criteria a funder might request an external evaluation versus an evaluation made by the NGO itself.
