Evaluation: not a spectator sport!
2015 has been declared the International Year of Evaluation. What does this mean for Canada on the world stage?
Join Us on June 12th, 2013 to Help Create the Future
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, opening the High Level Meeting on UN Results: Are we achieving them? How do we know? on April 16, 2013 stated: “All of us share a responsibility to strengthen the evaluation function. We have to tackle the challenge at several levels.”
In the next 5 to 10 years it’s imperative that we consider ways in which evaluation practice can enable social good, if it is to remain a meaningful and engaging discipline.
To kick start this dialogue, we need YOU.
Join Larry Bremner, members of the CES national council and more than 420 of your evaluation peers in a town hall-style, collaborative session on Day 3 of the Canadian Evaluation Conference. Help create our evaluation future!
Contribute to a robust evaluation community: Across Boundaries. This final innovative session will capture the collective intelligence using real time polling technology and our experience across the two conference days on the following issues:
- What challenges do you face as an evaluator?
- How do you think Evaluation as a field/practice might need to evolve over the next 10 years in order to remain viable?
- What is our role as practitioner evaluators in this process?
As you engage in conference activities, consider these questions and bring your comments and opinions to share with your colleagues and partners on Wednesday morning.
Following the keynote address by John Gargani and led by John and Sanjeev Sridharan, join us to explore these questions and develop a declaration to drive the process.
Date : Wednesday June 12, 2013
Time : 09h15
It’s time for action. It’s our future. How we respond to the challenge and determine the impact for our community is entirely up to us.
The hotel will provide a baggage drop after checkout for those who plan to leave immediately following the session.
