It's All About Impact

At last week's annual meeting, we spent a lot of time talking about impact. We discussed strategies for ensuring that research results could be used to foster change. We talked about messaging ideas to best communicate about research. We heard from end users or stakeholders about what they need to hear from researchers. We learned techniques for evaluating research. Everything boils down to this: how do we make sure we have an impact?

So, it was very timely to read Robin Mockenhaupt's guest blog at Last month Mockenhaupt, Chief of Staff at the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, attended the Social Impact Exchange conference. Here she shares her perspective on the value of strategic collaborations in scaling for social impact.

How are you sure your work has impact?
