“Johnston Research Inc. focuses on utilizing tools for change.”
We believe that the tools used in evaluation need to match your program because the tools are by themselves an intervention in-line with the program. Further, we don’t approach our contract work as “the expert”. We are collaborators and believe in social justice and reconciliation as viable processes. We also believe evaluation can be taught — creation stories, stories of specific beings, and stories of the natural world in which we live guide the actions we take and this type of thinking is evaluative thinking. Our evaluators have explored this approach in books on Indigenous evaluation as well as several articles on Aboriginal approaches to evaluation. We have presented and published in literature since 2005 at the Canadian Evaluation Society and American Evaluation Association annual conferences, and have challenged other evaluators to embark upon a path of reconciliation in their work. Our clients appreciate our attention to detail, innovative models, flexibility to consider alternative methods to strengthen the study and our willingness to meet their timelines and taking time to share our reports in real time.
