Current and Upcoming Events

Torres Consulting Group is currently seeking case examples of practitioners' use of logic models, theories of change, and/or systems approaches - for inclusion in a text on engaging stakeholders with graphic conceptual models. We are especially interested in cases that engaged diverse groups of stakeholders and that resulted in particular intended or unintended outcomes - consensus building, program development, evaluation design, use of findings, etc. Please contact Rosalie Torres at rosalie@torresconsultinggroup.com to discuss your case and the possibility of including it with reference to the appropriate sources.
