Evan Bartlett is a Strategy Associate at Third Plateau, where she supports our client teams to create effective strategies for social change. Evan believes in working hard at work worth doing, which has led her to a career in economic and social development. Initially passionate about agriculture and food security in the developing world, she spent time living in the rural village of Bombo Majimoto, Tanzania, as a Program Coordinator for The 2Seeds Network, an organization that works with local smallholder farmers to increase their agricultural productivity, market access, and financial literacy. She loved co-creating solutions with local partners and was energized by the direct impact they were able to achieve together. This formative experience set her on a track in international development.

Evan earned her Master’s in Global Human Development at the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

After graduating in 2018, Evan coordinated supply chain logistics for myAgro, an agricultural social enterprise that uses mobile money to allow smallholder farmers to buy agricultural inputs in a layaway fashion. She helped establish systems and processes for procurement, packaging, storage and delivery of thousands of tons of agricultural products; after the planting season, she coordinated a team of local Monitoring and Evaluation Officers to conduct the impact evaluation of myAgro’s approach.

Before joining Third Plateau, Evan was at the United States Agency for International Development’s Private Sector Engagement Hub, directing the Agency-wide on-line Community of Practice for peer-to-peer learning and knowledge-sharing on how to better engage the private sector for more sustainable development outcomes.

Evan is thrilled to join the team at Third Plateau and excited to continue to maximize social impact. She is also excited by Chicago Cubs baseball, supporting local vegan restaurants and long walks and cuddles with her dog, Fleabag.
