Seeing the World as a Network – Molly Cannon

by on February 20, 2013

molly-cannonHere at UNC, the main sport that people follow is basketball. When a basketball team has a lot of strong players, they are said to have “deep benches.” That is also a description of MEASURE Evaluation. We have a lot of highly skilled and seasoned professionals. Take Molly Cannon for example.

Molly is an M&E Specialist and Senior Research Associate for MEASURE Evaluation/Futures Group. Early in her career she worked in the US with American Indian tribes, in Turkmenistan while in the Peace Corps, and in Cambodia as a community health and training advisor. She began working with MEASURE Evaluation in Chapel Hill in 2010, where she has developed a data demand and use curriculum and assessed the child status index.

Over the past two years, Molly has developed strong relationships with Obafemi Awolowo and Ahmadu Bello Universities, two of our M&E training partners in Nigeria. She reports that we have trained 183 Nigerian M&E practitioners in less than two years, and we are now working to transition the universities to be the lead M&E training institutions in the country.

At home, Molly has her husband, Charlie, and daughters Sophie (7) and Lila (5). When not working, she likes to spend time with her kids, run with her dog, Scout, on the wooded trails in our area; do downhill skiing, backpacking and “pretty much anything outdoors.”

I think you will agree with me: Molly is a highly skilled and well-seasoned professional contributing to MEASURE Evaluation’s deep benches.
