Amy RichmondJD, MA, MPHIL, CE
Amy’s career as an evaluator began when a job advertisement caught her eye: “Are you a lawyer who doesn’t want to practice law?”
Program evaluation has allowed Amy to combine her interests in social policy and law. As a former litigator, she brings her legal experience to managing projects related to legal services and access to justice issues in both civil and criminal law. Amy has also worked extensively in other subject areas, including health, education and social services research.
Amy believes that evaluation and performance measurement are critical for organizations to have the evidence base to support program improvements, demonstrate results and determine priorities. She also understands the challenges in conducting research with government and non-government organizations in a variety of contexts, including from long-established programs to pilot projects, and from programming for health care and legal professionals to services for vulnerable populations.
Amy is a Credentialed Evaluator, a former member of the National Board of Directors of the Canadian Evaluation Society and a member of the State Bar of Texas. She works in the Winnipeg office and after two decades she is almost used to the winters…almost.
