Reflecting Dignity, Empowerment, and Listening: Revising Success Metrics for 10ThousandWindows

May 23, 2019

Right now at 10ThousandWindows, we’re revising how we measure success in our work with survivors of violence and exploitation. To do this, we’re working with Dr. Laura Cordisco Tsai, a global expert in economic empowerment, to identify and define new success metrics.


Why this Matters

Before joining 10ThousandWindows, I spent 10 years working at a foundation that supported organizations like ours. At the foundation, we wanted to help organizations understand the impact they were having with survivors. Over time, we learned that if we’re going to discuss what success is for survivors, we should probably ask survivors themselves.

It seems obvious, doesn’t it?

But unfortunately, it’s not common enough for organizations to include their clients in these conversations.

At 10ThousandWindows, we’re trying to approach this differently. We are including the survivors we work with to identify and define what success means for our work.

This paper describes the first stage in our efforts to do this.
