Session Abstract: 

Data parties (a.k.a results-briefings, data-driven reviews, participatory analysis, and “How are we doing?” sessions) play an important role in promoting evaluation use, but there is little formal information available on how to conduct one.  In this participatory demonstration we will look at the rationale for holding a data party, different formats and ways to set them up, as well as facilitation tips and techniques to set the stage for success.
