Evaluation & Learning
Building a Culture of Evaluation & Learning - full day
Developing a culture of evaluation and learning in an organization doesn’t happen overnight. Strong leadership and organizational commitment that encourages and supports systems for ongoing evaluation are essential for a culture of learning to thrive. This workshop will explore how a culture of learning can be developed, what a strong evaluative culture can look like (ie. reflection, evidence-based learning, experimentation) and how to encourage a culture of evaluation in your organization (ie. leadership, support structures, learning focus).

Tara also has a passion for supporting organizations to be the best they can be by working smarter, not harder. She believes in the value of failure and how it can support us to be better.
