2018 marks the American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) 32nd Annual Conference. Taking place on October 31-November 3 in Cleveland, Ohio, Evaluation 2018 brings together evaluators, evaluation scholars, students, and evaluation users from around the world are invited to assemble, share, and learn from the successes of the international discipline and practice of evaluation. The theme of Evaluation 2018 is “Speaking Truth to Power”.

Whether the origins of the phrase Speaking Truth to Power are an American Friends Service Committee’s 1955 pamphlet on nonviolence, a Quaker saying from the 18th Century, writings by civil rights leader Bayard Rustin, a speech by ACLU president Patrick Malin, or even plays by Sophocles or Shakespeare, it has been used by social justice activists, clergy, academics, journalists, politicians, and evaluators to describe taking a stand, speaking out.

Join evaluation colleagues in a lively, critical conversation about the role of evaluators and evaluation in Speaking Truth to Power. This theme will be a main focus in the presidential strand sessions.
