Racial Equity Lens Logic Model & Theory of Change: A Step by Step Guide to Help Organizations Become More Confident In Their Ability to Demonstrate Outcomes

NEW RELEASE!This book is a practical step by step guide to help city governments and nonprofits in developing logic models and theories of change using what is called the "Progressive Outcomes Scale” logic model framework. The Progressive Outcomes Scale (POS) approach was developed in 2020 by Quisha Brown in response to the racial wealth gap [exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic] to aid organizations in the immediate need to add a racial equity focus when developing program logic models. The logic model and theory of change development concepts taught in this book can be helpful to identify what actions can be taken to address root causes of racial inequities. This book provides measurable problems and outcome examples that can be used to assess progress, communicate with stakeholders, or to identify areas of improvement. It could also be used to spark brainstorming discussions for other activities an organization might want to pursue. This guidebook is divided into 3 parts, which are all key to creating a logic model and theory of change with a racial equity focus.PART I: Define problems & interventions using a racial equity lensPART II: Identify intended outcomes for ongoing data collection & reportingPART III: Racial Equity Lens Logic Model & Theory of Change DevelopmentTestimonials...“Quisha helped us create our first theory of change and logic model, and to think through what we were really designed to do as a nonprofit serving individuals with developmental disabilities.
