Itad at Evaluation 2019

We’ll be at ‘Paths to the future of evaluation’, this year’s American Evaluation Association conference, in Minneapolis from 11 to 16 November.

With colleagues from across the world, we’ll be leading sessions and joining discussions on this year’s theme of building the future of evaluation practice. We’ll share insights from across the breadth of our work, exploring some of the methods we use, the people we work with and areas we work in, and how we as evaluators can champion evidence in our changing world. We’d also love to share what we’ve doing since we opened up an office in Washington, D.C. in September. Please reach out to Stefanie Wallach, our US Director, or any Itad colleagues at AEA to chat about how this can support opportunities to work together.
