RTPE Meeting: Friday, February 15, Inclusive Practices in Evaluation Speed Consulting

  • Where: RTP Frontier, “Classroom” room. (800 Park Offices Dr, Research Triangle Park, NC 27709)
  • When: 2/15, 11am-1pm (meeting from about 11-12:15, 12:15pm on for lunch and networking/socializing)
  • Focus & process: We will be using a speed consulting process to discuss inclusive approaches to evaluation & stakeholder engagement approaches. This will include a focus on participatory, collaborative, empowerment, and developmental evaluation; we will address what these are, how to determine which is appropriate and feasible, and how they can be utilized effectively. The meeting will start with an overview of all approaches to provide a shared understanding. We will then have one member describes an evaluation they are working on. Through the speed consulting process, groups will address how a specific approach could be applied (or challenges that might be faced) in that context/situation.

*Opportunity to focus on your work!* This speed consulting process allows us to address a member’s specific evaluation project. If you feel that this collective thought would be useful for a current project of yours, please respond to this email.  We would love to highlight your project, and hope envision that the group’s input would benefit you.


Lunch will be provided. We will be sending a reminder closer to the meeting; that will include an RSVP, so we can get a lunch count.
