Rochelle Zorzi 2014Yasser Ismail 2014Rochelle Zorzi and Yasser Ismail: Rochelle and Yasser will talk about the Evaluation Stories around the World Initiative whose goal is to gather and publish a collection of stories about evaluations that have made a difference. They will share the storytelling development process on this global intiative to raise awareness and promote evaluation worldwide.

Maureen McKennaMaureen McKenna: Maureen’s interactive presentation will provide us with an opportunity to experience appreciative inquiry and the storytelling interview process. Learn how a public school board engaged various stakeholders to create a vision and plan for service excellence using appreciative inquiry by capturing their stories.


Heidi SchaefferHeidi Schaeffer: How can we know more about the difference that investments in the capacity of community organizations can make? Health Nexus and the Association of Ontario Health Centres, working with Tamarack Institute and with leadership from The Mowat Centre at the University of Toronto, asked just this question in a recent evaluation. Come and hear about the Partnership Grants Learning Project that set out to measure outcomes  of  a 7.2 million dollar investment in 27 not-for-profit community organizations by the Ontario Ministry of Citizenship and Immigration. Outcome Harvesting (part of an Outcome Mapping approach) was used in combination with Most Significant Change and Social Network Analysis.
