"Metrics from the Ground Up" is approaching fast!

We are still registering and receiving applications. Let’s gather in Rio de Janeiro to meet impact assessment and management experts who are eager to share their insights into the latest measurement tools and trends.

Measurement is about more than just accountability

When impact metrics are integrated with financial and operational metrics they can help organizations develop better products and services, make better investment decisions, and become more efficient in achieving impact. And when evaluations support a collective learning agenda rather than just a single project, they build knowledge for the entire sector.

Since 2009, ANDE has regularly hosted its Metrics from the Ground Up conference, featuring discussion topics and conference themes from emerging measurement practices among our members. In 2023, ANDE is excited to return the Metrics Conference to Latin America. With support from the Tipping Point Fund on Impact Investing (TPF) and Fundo Vale, the conference will take place in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on October 23-24.  

The event will have simultaneous translation to Portuguese, English and Spanish.
Register now!

We are thrilled to announce that the agenda for our Metrics from the Ground Up Conference is now available. The quality and depth of the submissions we received have underscored the wealth of knowledge, expertise, and innovation within our ANDE network.

The ANDE team has been diligently reviewing all submissions, and we are excited to offer you a sneak peek into some of the topics and themes that will be explored during our Workshops and Breakout Sessions. 

The exciting opportunities ahead

ANDE’s Metric Conference is attended by subject matter specialists and experts in monitoring and evaluation, impact measurement and management, researchers, and other practitioners.  Those who are looking to grow their skills in impact measurement and evaluation frequently attend as well.  The two-day conference will feature:

Networking opportunities | Breakout sessions | Panel presentations | Workshops

Past Metric Conference attendees state that this event allows for deeper conversations and offers more complex sessions in the impact measurement and management space.  Come and grow your skills and network in beautiful Rio!

What topic should my session be about?
What topic should my session be about?

Sessions should be focused on impact measurement and management (IMM), metrics, or monitoring and evaluation topics, either broadly applicable or specific to the small and growing business space (SGBs).  We will not accept session proposals that are not focused on IMM/monitoring and evaluation.  Sessions that are business proposals or sales pitches will also not be accepted.

We encourage submissions for 2023 around the following topics: ESG ratings/measurement, SROI, biodiversity, environmental conservation, climate change, measuring complexity or systems change, and soft skills for evaluators or IMM practitioners.

Who can submit session ideas?

Both ANDE members and non-members are encouraged to submit session ideas.  You do not need to be an ANDE member to submit a session idea or attend the conference. 

Can I submit more than one idea?

You may submit multiple different session ideas, however, ANDE typically will only select one session per organization. Session submissions will be reviewed by ANDE’s impact manager, research and impact director, Brazil chapter head, and local ANDE Brazil and Latin American staff.  We will notify accepted submissions 1.5 weeks after the submission deadline. 

Can I lead my session together with partners?

Multiple organizations can lead a session – ANDE encourages organizations to collaborate where possible.  When submitting your session idea, please disclose if you are working with other organizations to present your session.

Does the ANDE team offer assistance in my session?

If your session idea is accepted, you will mainly oversee leading the session and putting together the content.  ANDE staff will assist with logistical needs and review content and presentations before the conference.
