Session Abstract: 

EvalPartners, the global movement to strengthen national evaluation capacities, has recently begun several new world-wide initiatives. AEA has designated official representatives for five (5) of these new initiatives -- EvalGender+, EvalSDGs, EvalYouth, Professionalization, and EvalIndigenous – and a variety of activities are underway in each area. In this session, AEA’s official representative to each initiative explains the overall purpose and goals of the initiative, what is happening globally, how exactly AEA is involved, next steps, and how you can become involved. There will be ample time for audience questions and discussion.
