Emma Pritchard is an evaluator with more than 20 years’ evaluation and research experience, who specialises in the not-for-profit, community legal and international development sectors. Emma provides end-to-end monitoring and evaluation services that assist organisations to effectively articulate, measure, strengthen and report on the impacts of their work. Projects have ranged from small scale, small budget pilot projects through to complex multi-phase, multi-country initiatives.
Emma is an experienced facilitator of program logic processes and has a particular enthusiasm for facilitating theory of change discussions, seeing them as a critical step for good design, monitoring, evaluation and learning. Emma has also led evaluation training and coaching both in Australia and overseas.
Emma has worked with a range of organisations in the legal sector, including the Victorian Legal Services Board + Commissioner, the Victoria Law Foundation, and numerous community legal centres (e.g. Fitzroy Legal Service, Law Access, Women’s Legal Service Victoria). With these groups, Emma has used participatory methods to set up monitoring and evaluation systems at the project, program or organisational levels and has conducted both interim and end of program evaluations for individual projects.
In 2015 Emma designed and conducted Justice Connect’s first organisational impact reporting process and has since authored each annual impact report (2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019; http://www.justiceconnect.org.au/our-impact/our-impact-numbers).
