Hi, I’m Sarah Williams Leng.

Sarah has been practicing as an evaluator and social science researcher for 15 years. She holds a Masters in Applied Sociology and a Certified Associate in Project Management.

I partner with social impact organizations and collectives to enhance their evaluation and learning strategy, and build insightful data collection and reporting systems. During my career, I have supported evaluation and organizational learning for a diverse range of programs and initiatives including those in public health and the social services.

What you should know about me:

As a reflection of my values of equity and social justice, I use participatory and empowerment approaches so that communities are centered and their voices and contributions highlighted throughout the process. I embed learning culture principles into every group I work with.

With an appreciative inquiry approach, I will guide discussions that highlight the resources already present in your community and the opportunities to leverage strengths and collaborate.

Programs and initiatives are not static; they are part of a larger whole. I use systems thinking and principles to assess systems components and connections both within and outside of the organization or collective, to address oppressive systems.

Professional Memberships:

I’m a member of the American Evaluation Association (AEA) and the Washington Evaluators AEA affiliate. I’m also a member of the Project Management Institute Delaware Valley Chapter (PMI-DVC).
