It gives me great pleasure to present Dr. Kim van der Woerd with the Contribution to Evaluation in Canada Award. In 2007, Kim received the AEA Michael Scriven Dissertation Award for Outstanding Contribution to Evaluation Theory, Methodology or Practice. Kim is committed to see Indigenous people flourish in evaluation. She uses her firm, Reciprocal Consulting, as a vehicle to mentor Aboriginal undergraduate students to prepare them for graduate studies. Kim helps to close the gap faced by Aboriginal students by ensuring they have competitive CV's when applying for graduate studies. Kim has a passion for mentorship, capacity building and adhering to culturally informed practices. As noted by one of her nominators, "I cannot emphasize enough the value and importance of the mentorship model she adheres to in supporting Indigenous students professionally, academically, and personally." Kim van der Woerd.
