Karla Stroud

Karla is a Senior Research Consultant at Taylor Newberry Consulting, where she has worked on over 30 community-based research projects with organizations across Canada.  She finds it incredibly rewarding to use her skills in research and facilitation to build organizational capacity through learning and promote “aha” moments for clients about their programs and initiatives. Drawing on knowledge and skills she has gained over the past 6 years in the field, she has extensive experience facilitating workshops about evaluation design and practice for non-profits. In the process she has learned a tremendous amount about how non-profit organizations and systems function in the social service world.

She is committed to forming strong working relationships with non-profit organizations and their staff, and she devotes considerable time to getting to know programs, organizational context, and all of the stakeholders involved. She employs a collaborative and participatory approach with organizations to make sure that projects will meet their needs and generate evidence that can inform action. She has led projects at the national and local level on topics related to poverty reduction, food security, aging, mental health, and youth engagement. She recently completed her Ph.D. in Applied Social Psychology at the University of Guelph.
