On Working at FSG
"I am at FSG because it is a true learning organization fully dedicated to doing what is right and good, and in ways that respect and honor both clients and our staff. Being at FSG allows us to explore the intersection of strategy and evaluation, which creates exciting possibilities for achieving social impact goals. After spending 22 years in academia, I decided to return to working more directly with organizations that cared about improving the lives of others. While I always hoped I was making a difference through my teaching, research, and writing, I knew I wanted to make a different kind of difference. At FSG, I have the privilege of guiding our strategic learning and evaluation practice, through which we design and implement evaluations, evaluation systems, workshops, webinars, and organizational learning processes, in addition to building the field’s evaluation knowledge."
