Jennifer Birch-Jones

Jennifer Birch-Jones is an award winning practitioner in performance measurement, evaluation and planning with over 30 years of experience working in the government and not-for-profit sectors. She is a recent recipient of the Karl Boudreault Award for Leadership in Evaluation in 2016, and a credentialed evaluator (since 2015). In addition to her significant experience conducting evaluations, Jennifer continues to develop her performance measurement practice, most recently through a short term position with the PHAC-HC Audit and Evaluation group where she was immersed in the new Policy on Results. She believes passionately in the value of facilitated conversations which she incorporates into her performance measurement and evaluation practice, whether it be to build and come to consensus on a logic model and underlying theory of change, conducting  evaluations or delivering in-house and public workshops throughout Canada.
