Seminar overview

An enduring challenge for evaluators is how to recruit evaluation champions and keep stakeholders engaged. This session will share findings from research conducted as part of Alison’s PhD which examined the role of non-evaluators, and identified strategies that can be used to support engagement.

The session will use a fable, The animal farm and a postal worker, to illustrate key points about evaluators and evaluation champions. This illustrative anecdote captures the importance of having non-evaluators on evaluation teams who can assist with generating enthusiasm around evaluation. This seminar will present research undertaken with non-evaluators who were able to make evaluation relevant, meaningful and useful for their colleagues working in Australian non-profit organisations. Based on interviews and case studies, the seminar will share the perspectives of non-evaluators undertaking evaluation in culturally diverse contexts. It will highlight their insights into how to overcome interpersonal barriers to evaluation by developing meaningful interpersonal relationships and understanding their colleagues as individuals. It will conclude with a discussion around their practical strategies and the implications of this research for developing equitable and inclusive working environments.  Link: https://aes.asn.au/aes-blog/the-animal-farm-and-a-postal-worker-a-fable-about-evaluators-and-evaluation-champions
