Conference theme: Evaluation un-boxed

Evaluation can be a gift – with the potential to strengthen the lives of individuals and communities. This potential is best realised when evaluation is opened up to end users and when evaluators draw on the knowledge and practices of those they work with. Trans-disciplinary approaches and technological advances provide further possibilities.

Join us to learn, create connections and shape the ever-evolving role of evaluation and evaluators.
