Join JSI at the 2018 American Evaluation Association Conference

October 19, 2018

During the American Evaluation Association meeting in Cleveland, Ohio (October 31November 3), JSI staff will discuss their deep evaluation expertise, ranging from using development evaluation to assess the impact of a multi-sector collaborative on HIV to integrating health equity in evaluation. 

More than 3,000 evaluation scholars, students, and users from around the world will explore a number of questions related to this year's theme, "Speak Truth to Power" including:

  • What is power? Who has it, and how can they best be influenced?
  • What is the power held by evaluators and evaluation?
  • What is truth? Whose truth? How can we best discover these truths?
  • And, what is speaking? Whispering? Public pronouncements? Influence? Activism? And by whom on behalf of whom?
