Insights for Action: Impact Monetisation

In this seminar the Skoll Centre will discuss impact monetisation, within the context of impact measurement. In response to the increasing demands of measuring social and environmental impact, there has been renewed interest in assigning monetary numbers to social and environmental value. With this comes a range of different approaches, choices, and consequences. Join Sam Vionnet, Founder of Valuing Impact, and Karim Harji, Director of the Oxford Impact Measurement Programme, with Marya Besharov, Academic Director of the Skoll Centre, as for a timely and provocative discussion on monetizing and valuing impact.

The seminar will be followed by an outdoor garden reception.
