Have you ever wanted to engage with thousands of individuals from the evaluation community? Perhaps gather for a shared experience to discuss the practice of evaluation itself? If so, look no further than the 32nd American Evaluation Association’s Annual Conference, Evaluation 2018: Speaking Truth to Power.
Evaluation 2018 gathers more than 3,000 evaluators, evaluation scholars, students, and evaluation users from around the world to celebrate, share, and learn from the successes of the international discipline and practice of evaluation. Under the theme “Speaking Truth to Power,” this year’s attendees will engage in a critical discussion of how evaluators take stands and speak out. The event takes place October 31 through November 3 in Cleveland, Ohio.
