Public and private entities are being forced in today’s climate to “quantify” their actions, and prove these actions are generating results. Our virtual community is represented by groups with this same interest. This discussion, co-presented by The National Service Inclusion Project (NSIP) and the Job Accommodation Network (JAN) will focus on not only providing some tools to quantify your actions within the community, but also demonstrating the results that come from these actions and partnering with other groups in the community to achieve success. Included in this presentation will be a review and provision of a continuous improvement cycle and logic model for you to fulfill your organization’s goals.
