About our Monitoring and Evaluation Role

We are looking for a part-time Monitoring & Evaluation Coordinator who will also serve as Salesforce and TaroWorks Administrator to join our team to support a robust Monitoring, Evaluation, Research and Learning (MERL) program. We are at the forefront of helping women living in poverty transform their lives through entrepreneurial training, and we are looking for an amazing person to continue to manage our evaluation data collection system as we scale globally to reach a million women.  Our system primarily captures impact on income and business diversification but this position will allow for opportunities to help pioneer new ways of measuring how an SBS education can transform the lives of women as a women's increased belief in herself creates transformation in many parts of her life.  Most of our work is through our Global Catalyst Partners (GCPs) who are the NGOs that are implementing SBS trainings across the glob
