Evaluating and Learning About Community-led Change

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

Community-led change involves local people, groups and agencies working together to achieve local visions and goals. It’s an adaptive approach that encourages communities to try new things and learn from doing – iterating and improving as you go.

Learning and evaluation are essential to effective community-led change.

This online session focuses on practical tools and approaches you can use in your everyday community-led mahi. Included is an optional group coaching session post workshop to support your next steps!

We’ll cover:

•    Evaluation principles that align with community-led development (CLD)

•    What evaluating in community-led ways looks like

•    Useful tools and examples to demonstrate impact and value

This workshop is for those working in community-led contexts, as well as funders, partners and those who commission evaluation, who want to learn more about authentically demonstrating meaning and value from community-led approaches.

We encourage multiple people from community-led initiatives and organisations to attend so you can begin applying these tools and ideas to your mahi, and as such we are offering a discount for multiple attendees from the same team or project. 

This session will be facilitated by Denise Bijoux and Rachael Trotman. 

Denise Bijoux is a social researcher, evaluator, facilitator, and project manager based in Tāmaki Makaurau. She works across many sectors and is a specialist in CLD. With international experience she’s well versed in exploring the influence of CLD approaches and wider systems change. Denise also leads the team at Catalyse  and is an Associate with Powerdigm.

Rachael Trotman is a West Auckland-based social researcher, evaluator and human ecologist. She specialises in demystifying strategy and evaluation and supporting groups to know and show the difference they are making. Rachael has her own company called Weave and is also an Associate with Foundation North’s Centre for Social Impact.
