Join us in this enlightening episode as we delve into the world of evaluation and innovation with two esteemed guests, James Stauch, Executive Director for the Institute for Community Prosperity at Mount Royal University and Bethany White, Evaluation Manager from United Way of Calgary and Area. In this conversation, we explore the critical role of evaluation in the context of innovation, particularly in social and community development initiatives. Together with James and Bethany, we navigate the complexities of evaluating innovative projects and programs, uncovering the key principles and methodologies that drive effective evaluation practices.
In the spirit of our journey to promote reconciliation, we would like to honour the truth of our shared history and acknowledge Treaty 7 territory and the traditional lands of the Blackfoot Confederacy, that includes the Kainai, Siksika, and Piikani First Nations. We acknowledge the traditional lands of the Tsuut’ina First Nation, and the Stoney Nakoda, including the Chiniki, Bearspaw, and Wesley First Nations. We would also like to recognize the Métis people, and the Inuit people who have made their home here in Mohk’insstsis, also known as Calgary.
