    Dear CEA Members,

    Our colleagues at The EnCompass Learning Center have invited us to join their upcoming event. Please see the details and registration information below.

    Empowering Emerging Evaluators

    Date and Time: May 31, 2023, from 12 p.m. - 1 p.m. ET

    Panel Discussion followed by Q&A


    This special event is free, but space is limited! Please register athttps://www.eventbrite.com/e/empowering-emerging-evaluators-tickets-591743018297


    Empowering young and emerging evaluators (YEEs) is crucial for building a robust, diverse, inclusive, and sustainable evaluation community that can address the complex challenges we face. By providing opportunities for emerging evaluators to develop their skills and gain practical experience (and proactively contribute to evaluation community effort), we can ensure a more sustainable and fair future of the evaluation field. Additionally, promoting the inclusion of young and diverse perspectives in evaluation and the active participation of YEEs can help to promote social justice and equity, and ensure that evaluation processes are more inclusive, equitable, and responsive to the needs of diverse communities.


    The EnCompass Learning Center  panel on Empowering Young and Emerging Evaluators (YEEs), moderated by Khalil Bitar, will feature representatives from EvalYouth, the American Evaluation Association (AEA) Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) Program, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Evaluation Fellowship, and the Work Bank Independent Evaluation Group (IEG). These panelists, who have each played instrumental roles in supporting the community of YEEs, will share their perspectives on the following:

    • The transformative power of engaging YEEs in evaluation
    • The way in which the communities of practice and fellowships they represent have opened up pathways for YEEs and changed the field as a whole
    • Advice for those who are entering the market
    • Advice for employers on how to best support and engage YEEs in their work



    Khalil Bitar, ELC Faculty and Co-founder and former Chair of EvalYouth Global Network


    Mariana Branco – Founder, P2P+ Evaluation Career Advisory Services, World Bank Group IEG

    Gabriela Renteria Flores – Chair, EvalYouth Global Network

    Brandi Gilbert – Co-Director, AEA Graduate Education Diversity Internship Program

    Linda Vo – Evaluation Lead, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention


    Please note that this event will take place online via zoom. The login information for the event will be emailed to registrants at least one week prior to the event. The session will be recorded and shared (for a very limited time) with people who have registered. This is to enable access to those who may not be able to join us live on the 31st.
