Eva Sarr

The Center for Multicultural Program Evaluation
Founding Director
Melbourne, Australia
Eva Sarr is an indigenous Wolof woman of Serer ancestry from Sene-Gambia, in West Africa. She is also an indigenous Celtic- Scottish and Irish and 6th generation Australian-woman with a multi-denominational background. Her father was Muslim and her mother, Catholic.

Eva’s career in monitoring and evaluation began more than thirteen years ago as an Evaluation Capacity Building (ECB) recipient under the Gates Malaria Partnership (GMP). During this period, she was fortunate to work alongside members of the GMP and Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to: implement a multi-pronged and multi-discplinary program that prioritised field-based social research and training with clinical research and training,
co-develop the Global Fund’s country coordinating mechanisms ECB strategy and co-lead the development of a Centre of Excellence which delivered ECB services interfacing translational research, public health and Health Policy and Systems Research (HSPR).

Eva has worked UNICEF, World Vision and the Tri-State Governments of West, South and Central Australia. She’s also worked in the education and economic development sector with various NGOs and State Government Departments in Victoria offering monitoring and evaluation and ECB technical advice.

Now, Eva is the Senior Evaluation Lead with Magistrates Court Service Victoria and she is the founding director of the Centre for Multicultural Program Evaluation: a company that builds whole of sector capacity to respond to cultural diversity and changing population demographics.

The Centre is the one among a few organisations in Australasia focusing on culturally responsive evaluation capacity building. Understanding the complexities of culture is at the heart of what we do. Our work aims to make sense of the cultural beliefs, values, knowledge and skills that collectively shape human identity to increase understanding of the lives, context and lived experiences of people from diverse cultural backgrounds living in Australasia.
