Evaluation 2018: Speaking Truth to Power by the American Evaluation Association will hold its annual conference from 29 October - 3 November, 2018. The conference seeks to answer the following questions: What responsibilities do we have as evaluators for Speaking Truth to Power? When? In what contexts or situations? With what consequences? At what risk or cost? To whom, with what expectations?
- What is power? Who has it, and how can they best be influenced? What is the power held by evaluators and evaluation?
- What is truth? Whose truth? How can we best discover these truths?
- And, what is speaking? Whispering? Public pronouncements? Influence? Activism? And by whom on behalf of whom?
The conference will hold professional development workshops throughout the week, and plenary keynote presentations from Wednesday - Saturday.
