Pact is pleased to join evaluation leaders from around the world in New Orleans, Louisiana, for Evaluation 2022, the American Evaluation Association's annual conference. The event brings together the global evaluation community to share learnings and discuss critical topics on the international discipline and practice of evaluation.  

This year's conference theme is “(re) shaping evaluation together”. The program will explore three significant shifts that are disrupting evaluation practice, and that will influence how the field theorizes and applies evaluation to evidence-informed decision-making: Equity, social justice, and decolonization; new actors and social finance; and digital data and technology. Moving beyond silos, participants will consider how to integrate, reconsider and reimagine a new future together. 

Pact staff from across our global offices will present their work and facilitate key conversations at this important event. Presentations featuring Pact staff include: 

In addition to the above, Alysson Akiko Oakley, Pact’s Senior Director of Learning, Evidence and Impact serves on the board of the International and Cross Cultural Evaluation Topical Interest Group (TIG), which will hold their annual board meeting on November 15; and Lauren Serpe, Pact’s Deputy Director of Learning, Evidence and Impact, serves as Chair of the board of the Democracy, Human Rights and Governance TIG, which will hold their annual board meeting on Thursday, November 17. These board meetings are freely open to all evaluators and all are encouraged to participate to learn more about AEA, the TIG and how to get involved in the peer network. Learn more about TIGs.
