O gestor de fundos da Sitawi, Rob Packer, moderou debate sobre profundidade de impacto social na Conferência Anual da ANDE, nos Estados Unidos. A mesa foi composta por Sasha Dichter, do Acumen Fund, e Nicole Etchart, da NESsT.
The debate covered topics such as Acumen's Lean Data methodology and NESsT's focus on fair work, as well as how the qualitative monitoring of these issues can improve approaches that can lead to deeper changes in the lives of beneficiaries.
“Foi importante moderar a mesa com pessoas tão reconhecidas no setor como o Sasha e a Nicole. Como a Sitawi é co-líder junto com a ANDE da série de encontros Métricas na Prática, espero que possamos utilizar essas metodologias para aprimorar o modo como todos os membros do ecossistema dos negócios de impacto no Brasil medem o impacto socioambiental”, comentou Rob.
