Asking for a Friend: Developmental Evaluation with Louise Adongo

Aligned with CESNS Journal Club‘s March 2022 focus on Developmental Evaluation (DE), Andrealisa interviews C2019 Co-Chair Louise Adongo, on the role she sees for DE to support innovation toward equity and utility within programs and within evaluation practice. Together, they recall the evolution of DE in Canadian evaluation and at Inspiring Communities, and discuss upcoming opportunities and resources for Atlantic evaluators who are interested in applying DE to systems change (eg: a Primer), and work by Turtle Island Institute and the Blue Marble Evaluation Network.
