I’m Susan Kistler, the American Evaluation Association’s Executive Director, and I contribute each Saturday’s aea365 post. In last week’s post, I told you how to win a copy of Evaluation Strategies for Communicating and Reporting by suggesting your favorite (or a hated) data visualization via the aea365 comments.
Hot Tip: We received lots of great entries. Check out the comments from that post to get ideas for the dos and don’ts of data visualization, and to see who won!
This week, I’ve enjoyed learning from the folks in the LGBT TIG here on aea365 as well as via Joe Heimlich’s fantastic webinar this past Thursday on considerations when including questions of gender and sexuality as part of evaluation. If you are an AEA member, you can see the recording of the webinar, free in the AEA webinars archive.
Last week’s drawing went so well, and our LGBT TIG leaders were enthusiastic and inclined, that we’re trying another this week.
Cool Trick: Sponsored by our colleagues in the LGBT TIG, enter this week’s aea365 drawing! To enter, all you have to do, by midnight on Thursday, February 24, in any time zone, is to add a note to the comments section of this post that gives your take on when is a time that you should, or should not, include sexuality or gender identify in an evaluation?
We’re not looking for a right answer, but rather your thoughts on the question.
As with our previous drawing, you don’t have to be a member of AEA (but if you aren’t, wouldn’t you like to join?) to enter or win. If you are receiving this via email, just click on the post’s title to return to this post on the aea365 website and scroll down and add a comment.
One entry per person please (although you are welcome to comment on each other’s suggestions all you wish)! We will randomly select a winner from all those who add an on-topic comment. The winner will receive a copy of Finding Out: An Introduction to LGBT Studies generously donated by our colleagues at SAGE publications.
The American Evaluation Association is celebrating LGBT Week with our colleagues in the LGBT Evaluation Topical Interest Group. The contributions all this week to aea365 come from our LGBT TIG members. Do you have questions, concerns, kudos, or content to extend this aea365 contribution? Please add them in the comments section for this post on the aea365 webpage so that we may enrich our community of practice.
