Did you know that evaluations have the best chance of being useful and improving program delivery and outcomes when stakeholders are actively engaged in the process? Collaborative approaches to evaluation help to enhance the relevance, practicality, and impact of sport programs.

This webinar features a panel of researchers and practitioners with extensive experience facilitating and evaluating cross-sector partnerships. Drawing on their work with the Canadian Disability Participation Project our panellists will discuss the challenges and opportunities of partnered research, as well as practical tips for making connections that work.

Join us for an enriching conversation about how to foster partnerships and engage stakeholders to get the most out of your programs!
