Current events and credible evidence: How can evaluators help?

  • Wednesday, January 27, 2021
  • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
  • Virtual


Registration is closed

Current events make plain the negative real-world consequences of “alternative facts.”  At the same time, evaluation strives for greater equity by expanding our ideas of what evidence is and better representing marginalized groups’ realities in our work.  How are these intertwined issues showing up in your evaluation practice?  What can evaluators do to address the epistemic crisis and build a more equitable world?

At this members-only event we will discuss Donald Trump and the Rise of Tribal Epistemology by David Roberts (May 2017). We're very excited to come together as an association to how we, as evaluators, can expand our ideas about evidence and avoid tribal epistemologies. 

Moderator: Tatiana Masters
