Upcoming Event

Time for a Selfie II: Evaluation Capacity Building for Funder

September-24-2020                                          ::REGISTER::

The Organizational Learning/Evaluation Capacity Building TIG is pleased to announce its second webinar of the Evaluation Capacity Building for Funders series, organized by Marcela Gutierrez, one of our members and Program Co-Chair. The first webinar included presentations by evaluation leaders at the Packard Foundation, Duke Endowment, and The Children’s Trust of Miami-Dade County. Given the large audience and positive comments received, Dr. Gutierrez organized a follow-up webinar on the same topic with representatives of the McArthur Foundation, Barr Foundation, and Scattergood Foundation.  Discussants will share examples of why and how their respective foundations embarked on internal ECB, and how this work impacted their strategy development and grantee support work. Content should be relevant to a wide audience of evaluation capacity builders, funders, and non-profits.
