Covid-19 has revealed the inequities and injustice that perpetuate the systems in our state and in our larger society. As advocates for women and girls, we knew that systems of sexism and racism already disadvantaged women and girls and we braced ourselves for how the economic and health crisis would further harm them. This report documents the disproportionate impact of Covid-19 on women and girls, and particularly on women and girls of color. We intend this vital information to inform decisions in the future that can direct resources to women and girls. We urge policymakers, government officials, philanthropists, nonprofit service providers, corporations and our fellow community members to use this information to create equity through relief and recovery efforts.
Metro Hartford Progress Points: What Can We Do Differently? A Look at Progress and Promise in Our CommunitiesJuly 1, 2016
Last year's report focused on access to schools, jobs, neighborhoods and the ongoing challenge of creating access to opportunity. In this year's report, we focus on five related themes consistent with those priorities. With ongoing declines in state and local resources, how can we support meaningful change consistent with these priorities?
The Building Evaluation Capacity (BEC) program was initiated in the fall of 2006 by the Hartford Foundation for Public Giving's Nonprofit Support Program (NSP). It was designed to give participating organizations the knowledge, skills and tools to evaluate, improve and communicate about their work. The Class of 2015 is the fourth group of Hartford‐area nonprofit organizations to participate. BEC is a multi‐year program that includes evaluation capacity development for selected organizations and ongoing study for participating organizations that have completed the initial evaluation capacity building work. The evaluation capacity building training operates in two phases (phase I = initial training and evaluation project design, phase II = project implementation and continued training). Each phase is designed to provide comprehensive, long‐term training and coaching to increase both evaluation capacity and organization‐wide use of evaluative thinking for participating organizations.
