Many evaluators work to make the world a better place. For some, this means advancing explicit values in evaluation – values of diversity, equity, social justice, human rights, environmental sustainability, among others. Such values are increasingly central to evaluation work across private, government, and philanthropic sectors. However, advancing values in evaluation poses a unique set of challenges that those conducting evaluations are typically not trained in.
In this panel session, we invite conversation between panelists about how, if at all, they advance values in their evaluation work. The session will be moderated by Dr. Emily Gates, Assistant Professor of Evaluation at Boston College.
The panelists will include:
Margaret Hargreaves, NORC at the University of Chicago
Coffee and light breakfast will be provided.
Calling all GBEN independent evaluators! We'll be meeting up for a networking lunch after the Values in Evaluation Panel at Boston College.
