What do those who commission and fund evaluations want to achieve from the evaluation? What do they look for in an evaluation? How can evaluators better understand their informational needs and demands?

This panel offers a window into “Demand-Side Evaluation”, and features four experienced professionals who are involved in the funding and/or commissioning of evaluations from government, foundations, and private agencies. The panelists will discuss their diverse perspectives on evaluation’s role, and the indicators of quality evaluation that they prioritize.

Panelists include:

  • Kerry Bruce, Executive Vice President, Social Impact
  • Elizabeth Roen, Deputy Director, Office of Learning, Evaluation and Research, USAID
  • Molly Irwin, Chief Evaluation Officer, United States Department of Labor
  • Kantahyanee Murray, Senior Research Associate, Annie E. Casey Foundation
  • Chair/Moderator: Tarek Azzam, Associate Professor of Evaluation and Applied Methods, Claremont Graduate University
