Lunch Keynote – Equity, Ethics and Evidence: What’s new in AEA and the field?

Join current AEA president Leslie Goodyear to learn about recent AEA initiatives related to Equity, Ethics and Evidence, and engage in dialogue about important issues facing the field of evaluation. Includes a catered sit-down lunch.

What’s going on in the American Evaluation Association? And how can you get involved? Leslie’s talk will connect the EERS conference theme – Equity, Ethics, and Evidence – to recent AEA initiatives, with a focus on how EERS attendees can learn more about what’s happening in AEA and get involved. Topics will include a preview of the revisions to the Guiding Principles for Evaluators, an update on the Evaluator Competencies Task Force and their findings, and recent successes of the Evaluation Policy Task Force. In addition, she will make connections from the EERS theme to the 2018 AEA conference theme, Speaking Truth to Power. Her remarks will be brief so that she can engage in dialogue with the audience about these issues and others that are front-and-center in evaluators’ professional lives.
