September 12, 2017

Invest In Results Because Outcomes Matter

Speakers included: John Bridgeland (Civic Enterprises), Lisa Fitzpatrick (DC Department of Healthcare Finance), Michele Jolin (Results for America), Sonal Shah (The Beeck Center at Georgetown University), and Eshauna Smith (Urban Alliance).

How can service providers, government, private funders, and others work together to address entrenched social issues in our communities and focus on long-term solutions? Topics covered include:

  • What are outcomes, and how are they measured?
  • What innovative funding and financing tools are available to revolutionize our approach to solving big social problems?
  • How does current funding make it harder for service providers to offer long-term solutions, and what investments must we make in providers to facilitate this shift?
