With the November midterm elections approaching, the Minnesota Evaluation Association (MNEA) invites you to join a timely discussion on the ways in which changing political landscapes affect evaluations. Participants will hear from seasoned panelists and have the opportunity to ask questions. Panelists include:
Paul Mattessich: Executive Director, Wilder Research
Eric Moore: Chief of Accountability, Innovation & Research, Minneapolis Public Schools
Jodi Sandfort: Professor & Department Chair (Leadership & Management), Humphrey School of Public Affairs
Does the field of program evaluation have a role to play in proactively shaping the political landscape, or as evaluators are we constrained to being reactive to political change? Join us for lively conversation around this question and others. MNEA's student representatives Kate Diamond and Hanna Ruth will facilitate the discussion.
This event is FREE to MNEA members, $10 for non-MNEA members, and $5 for students. There will be light refreshments & beverages available.
