We have talked about the ingredients it will take to make your initiative successful. Once up and running, you will want to measure your success to build further credibility around your efforts. As you track progress against your goals, you will be regularly reviewing data to learn what is working, and making any necessary refinements to your program.
“To achieve the expansion in jobs needed to close the employment gap for people with disabilities, we must develop programs that are effective, sustainable and scalable. Measuring the success of each initiative contributes to our knowledge base and furthers our progress toward a workplace that is truly inclusive.”Elaine Katz
Senior Vice President of Grants and Communications, Kessler Foundation
