Steven Lam (he/him)
I conduct research and provide service as a consultant. For the past six years, I have led research, evaluation, facilitation, knowledge translation, and strategy for initiatives promoting social change. I bring collaborative, action-oriented, equity-focused, and theory-driven approaches to my work. I have contributed to projects on food security, sustainable agriculture, climate change, rural development, environmental health, social justice, and more, in Canada and internationally.
I am also a PhD candidate at the University of Guelph, where I am a CIHR Doctoral Scholar. My research explores methods and tools for integrating social equity and environmental sustainability into the evaluation of development programs. I hope to improve the ways in which evaluation can contribute to social change by considering the diversity of populations and the context beyond the scope of the evaluation.
