The first ever Evaluation Leaders Event will take place online on April 30, as part of the 2021 CES conference. You can register for it as a workshop as part of your general registration to the conference or you can elect to take part in that event alone. Not yet sure about attending? Here is a message from the keynote speaker, Shawn Kanungo, encouraging you to attend.
The past year has brought an extraordinary level of change to both the nature of evaluation work as well as how we carry that work out. As the world transforms, is evaluation keeping pace? What should evaluation leaders be thinking about to ensure our contributions are making a difference? This virtual symposium, aimed at both current as well as future leaders in evaluation, will broaden participants’ awareness and adaptability in this rapidly evolving environment, and equip them to maintain and bolster the relevance and timeliness of the evaluation function! Highlights include: keynote address by noted disruption strategist, Shawn Kanungo, on challenges in an age of innovation, transformation, and experimentation; a conversation with Deloitte’s National Lead – Workforce Strategy, Stephen Harrington, on transformative leadership; a dynamic panel featuring current and former federal deputy ministers, focusing on how to leverage change to fully realize the value of evaluation. The ELE will be an opportunity to get engaged in thinking about positioning evaluation now and for the future.
