I have had the pleasure of working with Mary, as a colleague and contractor, many times over the last decade. She has a deep appreciation of the challenges faced by vulnerable people and communities, and a special ability to help social innovators think about, plan and evaluate their work. I have used the work of Eko Nomos and Mary a great deal in those years and continue to (happily) recommend her as a first rate consultant, coach and evaluator.
Women’s Centre of York Region worked with Eko Nomos on our 2013 Assessing Our Impact project. We wanted to build on our work with the Sustainable Livelihoods framework and develop clear tools to assess women’s readiness for programs and evaluate impact of programs. It was so helpful to work with a consultant with the knowledge and experience to guide us through some challenging conversations and engage all staff in developing theories of change and identifying tangible and realistic program outcomes. We have now piloted our post program evaluation tool with women with very encouraging feedback and look forward to better understanding the impact of our work.
