We will measure the impact of this work at two levels: at the level of the program and at the level of the system. At the program level, a developmental evaluation approach will be taken to ensure the program is responsive to the emergent needs of the cohort. It will track and measure the challenges and successes of the various program elements designed to support the cohort innovators to reach individual goals at their organizations.
At the system level, a separate evaluation will be undertaken to assess the impact of the individual and collaborative projects undertaken by Nourish innovators and their organizations on food and health systems. Both evaluations will be ongoing and inform the evolving strategy of the Nourish leadership program and the other strategic communications and convenings implemented in association with the leadership program.
