    The Minnesota Evaluation Association is looking forward to hosting a panel discussion on Friday, December 1 from 4-6pm in Auditorium A at the Amherst H. Wilder Center. 

    Panel presenters, Sida Ly-Xiong, Dr. Ellen Shelton, and Joe Curiel, will discuss how they think about and address issues of access and equity in and through their evaluation work. Each panelist will share evaluation projects that best reflect the products and struggles of the process of defining, designing, and measuring access and equity within evaluations and programs. After presentations from each panelist, members of the MNEA board will facilitate a panel discussion and audience Q&A.

    The panel will begin at 4:00 and end at 5:30, providing time for networking among audience members and panelists.
    Light refreshments will be provided.
