Michelle's social impact journey
How impact, and particularly social impact, is traditionally measured and communicated became of particular interest to Michelle when she was the Partnerships Manager at the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival - a premier pan-art event held in Kirikiriroa each year.
Michelle was frustrated by the lack of a way to truly articulate their impact, and a method of measuring the outcomes that we could not quantify (leading us to report outputs). Simply, we weren't able to measure the benefits that we knew engagement with the arts was having on people's lives. Benefits that appeared to be simply unmeasurable. A problem which applies to many organisations working with people.
Serendipity of timing and a search of social impact measurement methodology led Michelle to her partnership with Huber Social.
