Learnings: Social Justice Program
The Arcus Social Justice Program is focused on increasing acceptance, inclusion and legal protections for LGBT people around the world. In 2013, the program launched a new strategy that included ten-year goals, anticipated outcomes for the first five-year period, and specific measures that would aid us in assessing whether we were advancing change and achieving impact.
In 2015, the foundation conducted an evaluation to determine how we were advancing against our stated goals and outcomes. This mid-course evaluation has helped us to understand the achievements that we have supported, what’s been working in our strategy and what areas need re-thinking and adjustment.
We are making this information available publicly because we believe that our commitment to learning from our work and from the efforts of our grantee partners extends beyond the walls of our foundation. We look forward to sharing additional information about what we’re learning in future reports.
