Impact Conversations is a show about change makers getting things done. 

Sally Fazal and Lynn Fergusson of Social Impact Advisors talk to NGO leaders, philanthropists, social entrepreneurs and environmental innovators about their goals and how they're reaching them.

Nov 26, 2020

It’s evident in this conversation that Melissa is a strong proponent of a non-profit having a Theory of Change – having a clear objective and a road map to get there.

She shares with us Canada Learning Code’s significant but achievable goal, and their journey of developing and living into a Theory of Change to deliver on that goal.  It has continued to be their guide through a re-branding and the unprecedented times presented by COVID-19.

You’ll hear how the Theory of Change has rigourously captured the organization’s secret sauce, to ensure that they stay focused on what has been proven to work, even if they need to adapt their delivery.  

You won’t be surprised to learn that Melissa was building her own websites at age 11 and you’ll hear her bring that same curiosity and passion to her work leading Canada Learning Code.
