Dara Dillon

Director of Community Programs
The Inclusivity Institute for Better Data (IIBD)

With over 15 years of experience as a credentialed evaluator, I specialize in external evaluations for diverse development projects. My approach focuses on inclusivity and innovation, integrating participatory methods such as sense-making, photovoice, and design thinking to engage marginalized voices, including gender perspectives. My expertise in evaluative thinking provides a comprehensive understanding of program impacts. Moreover, my strategic planning ensures equity, diversity, inclusion, and gender sensitivity, fostering environments where diverse perspectives thrive. Alongside evaluations, I facilitate workshops and sessions, encouraging collaborative dialogue. Through these evolving methodologies, I forge partnerships that drive meaningful change and empower organizations for lasting positive impact.
