CEO Knestis Presenting at Evaluation 2016

Hezel Associates CEO Kirk Knestis PhD will be co-presenting a round table session at Evaluation 2016, the annual conference of the American Evaluation Association, taking place October 24-29 in Atlanta, Georgia. His session, Designing Evaluations for State and Federal Program Grants, will be led by Jessica Weitzel, Director of Evaluation for Via Evaluation (Buffalo, NY). Topics for the participatory discussion will address the challenges that small firms and independent consultants often encounter when designing evaluations for grant applications that focus on securing program funding—designing evaluation studies simultaneous to program design and proposal writing; working with program staff with limited understanding of evaluation; being responsive to application evaluation requirements while still meeting client needs; and ethical and practical implications of supporting this type of evaluation planning. Their round table session (#1489 in the program) is part of the conference’s Independent Consulting track, and is scheduled for Thursday, October 27, 11:00-11:45 AM, in Room A601.
