Welcome to the All ABOUT IMPACT LEARNING webinar series.
This webinar series will invite social enterprises and nonprofits to share their impact journies. In addition, they will share how they are engaging and learning outcomes from their stakeholders.
They’re thrilled to have Serge Raemaekers, founder of ABALOBI, join them to share his experience of scaling technology for good. ABALOBI is a South Africa-based, global social enterprise. Their mission is to contribute towards thriving, equitable, and sustainable small-scale fishing communities globally through the joint development of Technology For Good.
As with many social entrepreneurs, Abalobi has a mission of changing the way we catch and consume fish. It is very similar to how they farm, use energy, irrigate, commute, or make decisions as a person of color. So what are the challenges in this behavior-changing mission?
This webinar will take the journey of impact experiments. Asking three challenging questions,
What problem is ABALOBI solving?
Who are they solving the problem for?
What are they doing to solve the problems?
ABALOBI is engaging key stakeholders and learning how to overcome any barriers in using products and services ABALOBI is providing. It is essential to have these learnings and following small but solid steps to scale their work.
Sopact team and Serge will have a dialogue on,
importance of stakeholder engagement
designing and executing impact experiments

Reclaim the Gains: Addressing COVID-19’s Secondary Health Crisis for Women, Children and Adolescents
The COVID-19 crisis is reversing years of hard-won gains for women, children, and adolescent health and human capital outcomes. More than one year on, with disrupted health systems stretched to the breaking point and economies severely impacted, women, children and adolescents in the world’s poorest countries have been hardest hit by a secondary crisis that threatens to roll back the remarkable gains made over the last decade.
The world was making steady yet uneven progress in improving health outcomes for women, children and adolescents. Amid better access to family planning, skilled birth attendants, and better nutrition, the newborn mortality rate almost halved worldwide between 1990 and 2018.
Now, the pandemic is reversing hard-won gains on the Sustainable Development Goal of achieving health and well-being for all by 2030. In many low- and middle-income countries, coverage of essential health services for women and children has dropped by up to 25% during the pandemic. Reports have flagged rises in stillbirths and maternal deaths, while contraceptive use has been disrupted for an estimated 12 million women in 115 countries. Women and girls have also borne the brunt of other secondary impacts of the pandemic: dramatic increases in gender-based violence, protracted school closures, job losses, and increases in unpaid care.
These trends threaten to cause a lasting secondary crisis if COVID-19 efforts are not complemented by investments in and integration of essential health services for women, children and adolescents as part of the response and recovery.
This event, hosted by Devex in partnership with the Global Financing Facility for Women, Children and Adolescents (GFF), will explore how and why countries and partners must maintain a laser focus on protecting and promoting the continuation of essential health services for the most vulnerable populations and strengthening frontline community and primary care services and systems to help countries prepare for the equitable, affordable and safe delivery of vaccines and tools – while also strengthening health systems and building resilience for future pandemics.
Time: 9:00 AM l 3:00 PM CET

Join us for the second installment of their hybrid training series, “High Impact Hybrid with Heather Mason: Question Everything” on Thursday, September 30th, 12:00-1:30pm PST.
In their first “High Impact Hybrid” call, they learned how to create legal, executable and equitable health and safety plans. During this call, Heather will focus on taking inventory and challenging assumptions about the what, the how, and who of hybrid convenings. Heather will dare participants to dig deep and question EVERYTHING in order to find what should truly drive your event. When they question all their assumptions, from what their audience needs, to how they need to deliver content, to what is the purpose of in-person anyway, they start to arrive at counterintuitive and insightful conclusions.
During this session, they will:
- Radically evaluate the goals, needs and values of your hybrid event, from audience to engagement, interactivity and entertainment.
- Gather your true inventory – no magical thinking here!
- Explore delivery methods through Heather’s Hybrid Matrix: The 13 Types of Hybrid
- Analyze and leverage hybrid assets and tools
Expect radical thought leadership and cutting-edge resources that will profoundly change the way you think about and execute your hybrid events.
Thank you to all who attended their first hybrid training call, “High Impact Hybrid with Heather Mason: Health + Safety Plans” on August 24th. If you missed it, check out their video recap at this link.
Time: 3:00 PM—4:30 PM EDT
Shift Conversations is a series of free live-streamed events. These panels, small group conversations, and workshops will feature cross-sector leaders having intimate, insightful conversations about the present and future of the social impact movement. Join them to learn from the wisdom and lived experience of some of the most highly respected thinkers and actors in the social and environmental impact ecosystem.
With floods, wildfires, and extreme weather events on the rise, we know that the climate crisis is here and the time for action is now. Entrepreneurs are scaling solutions and impact investors are mobilizing capital. Many of them in the impact space wonder if we should address the climate emergency by focusing on resilience and adaptation or on preventing additional warming. Both of these critically important approaches need to be funded, but what’s working? What’s not working? How can we make the greatest impact in the least amount of time?
In this Shift Conversation, they’re going to look at some of the most impactful ways that investors are allocating capital to build resiliency and adapt to solve the challenges we face from their changing climate today while also directing capital towards the prevention of additional warming tomorrow.
Nicole Davis, a Partner and Senior Wealth Manager at Veris Wealth Partners, will lead this conversation with a variety of actors in the impact space to uncover some of the most promising approaches to stop warming, reduce CO2, and bring about a just and equitable transformation of their global economy so we can transition away from fossil fuels while building resilience in the frontline communities that are already facing the worst impacts of climate change.
Veris Wealth Partners is a wealth management firm with a 100% focus on impact investing. Addressing climate change has been one of the firm’s core investment themes since its inception.

Implicit Association Tests (IAT) are common psychological assessment tools that allow researchers to discover and measure the extent of subconscious beliefs held by respondents by examining associations between different concepts. One well-known example of IAT is the Harvard Implicit Association Test, an initiative from Project Implicit. They are excited to share their field plug-in that will enable you to easily design and conduct Implicit Association Tests using SurveyCTO.
Please join them for this live webinar where they will introduce and explore support for Implicit Association Tests (IAT) in SurveyCTO:
In this webinar, they will introduce and illustrate SurveyCTO’s new IAT support in detail, including the following aspects:
Understanding the IAT field plug-in’s main components and parameters.
Implementing an IAT survey in SurveyCTO.
Customizing the IAT field plug-in according to your needs.
Attendees will learn how to get started with designing and conducting IAT surveys in SurveyCTO and leveraging their field plug-ins for other surveys. Their team will also discuss (and where possible, demonstrate) other points of interest during the Q&A portion of the webinar.
Time: 9 am ET / 1 PM UTC
