Skylar Franke is the Executive Director of London Environment Network, which connects and supports over 40 non-profits and community groups with an environmental focus in London, Ontario.

In this, the very first episode of the Useful Evaluation Podcast, Skylar tells us where she first encountered evaluation, how she is using evaluation to tell the stories of LEN’s members and her dream of creating a giant metrics spreadsheet that can be used across the environmental sector. We also ask what happens with data once it’s collected and how evaluation can help to keep (or drop) New Year’s resolutions.
