    The New Stance for Evaluators: Developing A Model for Practice

    Led by the Washington Evaluators, September 13th, 12:00-1:30pm ET


    Discussion Topic:

    As evaluators, we stand in a special place, at the nexus of participants, programs, organizations, and communities. We work with each of them, study them, and communicate with them, but do we foster understanding and integration across these stakeholder groups? And further, do we acknowledge that our work is embedded in the broader contexts of identity, race, social conflict, environmental degradation, and diminishing resources? When we finish a project, can we say that we have also promoted social justice, that value so fondly espoused by our profession? Can we center equity, counteract bias (including our own), work toward the safety and security of all human and natural systems, and still fulfill the requirements of our mandates and contracts? Are we overwhelmed? Are these expectations unrealistic? Maybe we should stick to our knitting OR maybe we should work together as a community of practice to break down silos, overcome roadblocks, and identify strategies that will lead to positive change. Let’s start a conversation about a new model for practice that can help us work towards positive change. Gail will identify some of the issues we face, share her model for a new evaluator stance, open a discussion about the barriers we face, and facilitate problem solving about ways to change our practice. She will also share a preliminary checklist of strategies she has developed and will invite participants to add their suggestions to the list.

    Facilitator:
    Gail Vallance Barrington is a Credentialed Evaluator (CE) and a certified
    teacher. During her 35 years as owner and manager of Barrington Research Group, Inc., she completed over 130 evaluation studies in education, health, and research. She wrote the popular book, Consulting Start-up and Management: A Guide for Evaluators and Applied Researchers (SAGE, 2012). She is co-author of the newly released introductory text, Evaluation Time: A Practical Guide to Program Evaluation (Barrington & Triana-Tremain, SAGE, 2022). She has served on the boards of both the American Evaluation Association (AEA) and the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES). Awards include the CES Contribution to Evaluation in Canada Award (2008) and the AEA Alva and Gunnar Myrdal Award for Evaluation Practice (2016). She is a Fellow of the Canadian Evaluation Society (2018) and currently teaches qualitative and mixed methods evaluation in the online Program Evaluation Master’s and Certificate Programs at Michigan State University.
