How do you measure value in human rights advocacy work? In this interactive session, Jennifer Estrada ‘08 will utilize her 15 years of experience working in nonprofit programs, education design, and volunteer management to share methods and practices to create dynamic, meaningful processes for impact assessment. Weaving in her current work focus on creating scalable and sustainable programs, training, and resources to support advocacy and activism for global human rights, students will walk away with new insights and tangible skills, including developing processes for impact assessment that measure what is truly valued, and not just what is easily quantifiable.
Jennifer earned her bachelor’s in psychology from Amherst College and her master’s in comparative and international education from Oxford University. She has a background in the use of literacy, social-emotional learning, and positive psychology to promote self-expression, leadership, and advocacy.
For the past 15 years, Jennifer has worked with global organizations to support young people, families, adult volunteers, and communities in building leadership and advocacy skills and creating sustainable development and community-led advocacy projects.
