Planning for Impact – 
Training for Success

Margerit Roger M.Ed. is an experienced program planner and evaluator, community builder, and project manager. She has designed, managed, and evaluated programs for community-based social purpose organizations, post-secondaries, industry, labour, and provincial and federal governments. She has spent the last ten years using social impact analysis as a way of strategically describing an organization’s “ripple-effect” on individuals, families, communities, and systems.

Margerit is also an adult educator who believes that an important part of every project is building capacity for program planning and evaluation with the client organization.

Eupraxia Training’s guiding principle is to “see the parts within the whole”, which serves as a reminder of the interconnectedness of people, organizations, and projects within various financial, social, and environmental contexts; what affects individuals affects the whole as much as how the whole affects the individual.
