My name is Tory Read and I am an independent consultant on contract to Wikimedia Foundation to conduct a qualitative review of the IEP Pune Pilot Project. My background is in journalism, sociology and community development, and my M.A. studies and thesis work included both quantitative and qualitative research methods at the University of Missouri-Columbia. I have experience conducting qualitative evaluations and reviews of program investments for many foundations and international groups, including United Nations Development Programme, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, United States Agency for International Development, and many others. My article on measuring results in social impact investments at the Annie E. Casey Foundation was recently published in The Foundation Review, a peer-reviewed academic journal. I have done extensive work in Southeast Asia and the Pacific Islands. This is my second engagement with Wikimedia Foundation. The first occurred earlier this year and resulted in Growing Wikipedia: The India Chronicles, which you can find on Wikimedia Commons.
