About the LGBT Issues TIG
The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Issues TIG provides visibility of and support for LGBT issues within AEA. The TIG serves LGBT-identified evaluation colleagues, LGBT allies, and evaluators interested in working with LGBT populations. It provides a safe forum to explore LGBT issues within AEA and in the profession.
The TIG promotes better understanding of LGBT issues through developing and sponsoring LGBT-focused conference programs, providing support and guidance for evaluators working with LGBT related issues, and by further enhancing and supporting the diversity efforts within AEA and our profession.
How to join the LGBT Issues TIG - All AEA members can join this TIG as one of the five TIGs each member is entitled to become member of. For information about joining AEA TIGs, visit AEA's TIG webpage.

Submit a paper or panel presentation Paper submission is closed for 2011, but we welcome ideas for the 2012 conference. As the smallest TIG in AEA, our acceptance rate of papers is very high.
