Annual General Meeting + Integrated Strategic/Operational Plan update and consultation
As you are all aware, CES Ontario has undertaken an integrated strategic and operational planning process (ISOP) to guide us over the next 5 years. In this session, members will review our updated Vision, Mission, Value Statements, and Strategic Directions. We will also be engaging members in helping us identify key activities to move our operational planning forward and bring our ISOP Goals to life.
Learning Event: Feminist Data Analysis
Very few people become evaluators because they want to promote racist or sexist ideas. However, it’s very easy to accidentally fall into these traps, particularly in the data-centric aspects of evaluation. A working understanding of how to incorporate ethics and equity into quantitative evaluation is essential. Heather’s talk will tell stories and show real world examples that will guide you through the process of learning to identify inequity and hidden bias at seven key stages of the evaluation data lifecycle.
