LIEZEL DE WAAL » FOUNDING PARTNER AND SENIOR EVALUATOR
MA Sociology, Postgraduate Diploma in M&E
Liezel has always sought to understand how things work in the world. Apart from her general interest in almost everything, she has a special interest in understanding people and, particularly, their collective actions. It’s no wonder she found herself in the world of Sociology and Evaluation. She believes that every organisation, community, society and their individuals have unique stories to tell. These stories are deeply situated within contexts that are not easily observable. Through applying the tools of the social-sciences-trade, the dynamics underlying these contexts are distilled and meaning is generated. As an evaluator, Liezel feels endlessly blessed to be able to work with amazing people and organisations every day, doing work that is her true calling. Before M&ESURE, Liezel worked as a social science researcher in a variety of different fields, including social assistance grants, science and technology, higher education, community development and poverty alleviation as well as monitoring and evaluation.
