(To register for this webinar, email Kate Seely at Kate@epip.org for the registration link as this webinar is restricted to EPIP members.)
EPIP in partnership with the American Evaluation Association (AEA) is offering EPIP members free access to the Coffee Break webinar “Evaluate More Strategically” on Thursday May 2nd from 2:00 pm to 2:20 pm ET. The webinar will be presented by Efrain Gutierrez from FSG, also Steering Committee member of the Seattle EPIP chapter.
There is an emerging trend in the philanthropic sector toward being more deliberate about the intersection of strategy and evaluation. Foundations and nonprofits are being more intentional about learning from their work by evaluating their programs and initiatives, but often lack an overarching structure that brings evaluation activities together into a comprehensive strategy. This webinar will explain one solution – the concept of Strategic Learning and Evaluation Systems. They describe learning in terms of “why”, “how”, “when”, and “by and with whom”, and determine to what extent various programs, initiatives, processes, or policies will be evaluated and with what resources.
If you are interested in attending, email Kate Seely at firstname.lastname@example.org for the registration link.
AEA Coffee Breaks are a series of short coffee-break-length demonstrations of 20-minutes each that introduce tools of use to evaluators. These demonstrations are free for AEA members.
