How Will You Shine Your Light?

Those of us in AEA, or who have chosen the profession of Evaluation, have done so because we believe our professional field allows us to shine our lights for the purposes of improving conditions for others to shine theirs. This year’s theme, How Will You Shine Your Light? explores the expression of light through evaluation practice.

AEA President Aimee White encourages those submitting a proposal to ask “How am I shining my light in my work?” When creating a proposal submission, pose your own questions around how you are shining your light in evaluation practice.

Think About the AEA Guiding Principles

New this year, we want your proposal to connect to the AEA Guiding Principles. The Guiding Principles reflect the core values of AEA and are intended as a guide to the professional ethical conduct of evaluators. When submitting your proposal, you will be asked to choose principles that are related to your topic or proposal. Learn more about the AEA Guiding Principles.
