TSNE (tsne.org) is working to build to a more just, equitable society. We do this by providing capacity building services, consulting and training services, and operational support for hundreds of nonprofits, foundations, community-based groups, and others working for social change. We are partners and colleagues working collaboratively to support areas critical for organizations, including property management, leadership development and support, finance and accounting, human resources, and organizational development. We live by our values as an organization, and are committed to identifying, including, and valuing the unique skills, perspectives and knowledge of each member of our team.
About our Values:
The Program Evaluator will serve as the lead evaluator for TSNE’s three core program areas: Consulting, Fiscal Sponsorship, and Property Management. This includes designing and managing a programmatic evaluation framework, analyzing quantitative and qualitative data using statistical analyses, and effectively communicating key findings to both internal and external stakeholders. This person will be responsible for designing programmatic learning metrics and measurement practices and implementing interactive data visualization tools such as dashboards that help staff and constituents understand the quality and impact of TSNE’s work. Lastly, the Program Evaluator will provide ongoing training and supports to develop individuals’ learning and evaluation capacities. While the Program Evaluator will eventually assist the fiscal sponsorship and property management teams, a majority of their ongoing work and expertise will be centered in support of TSNE’s consulting programs.
TSNE’s consulting department consists of three strategies: cohort learning, direct consulting services, and training programs. Our direct consulting work includes organizational development, executive search and transition, and human resources for a wide variety of organizations, government agencies, foundations, and other entities. We deliver approximately 30 trainings per year via our Better Nonprofit Management Series and custom-designed trainings for clients. Finally, we currently offer cohort learning in the areas of leadership, organizational development, and supporting the consulting field. As a true learning team, our consulting staff work both independently and collaboratively across all three strategies, crafting innovative approaches that help TSNE strengthen organizations working towards a just and equitable society. The Program Evaluator will work closely with that collaborative team.
