The C2021 Conference has four inspiring keynote events in store for delegates.
On Sunday, May 9th, attend a learning event on Anti-racism and the implications for evaluation practice, offered as part of the CES’ mandate to support evaluators in dismantling systemic and structural oppression and learning new ways to acknowledge and address the struggles of historically oppressed communities.
Monday’s keynote panel on Evaluation utilization: transformational or more of the same? will engage leading evaluators from Canada and Latin America to discuss how we can design and conduct evaluations that contribute to transformational change and learning for the betterment of programs and their clients.
On Wednesday, come listen to Dr. David Phipps, named the most influential knowledge mobilizer in Canada, talk about Creating, valuing, and using strategic information. He will be joined by three discussants to explore planning for knowledge impact, from before knowledge production to the end of the knowledge usage flow.
The fourth plenary, Evaluation in the Public Management Ecosystem: Essence or Anomaly?, will bring together a panel of experienced thought leaders to examine provocative questions such as: in a fast paced and dynamically changing post-pandemic system, is evaluation – as originally proposed anyway – an endangered species? Maria Barrados, former President of the Public Service Commission of Canada and Assistant Auditor General, will deliver the keynote address followed by two renowned discussants.
