Awkward Evaluation Networking

A free presentation-centered networking group for Evaluators.

This is NOT a course. It's just the registration page for an evaluation community. If you register here you'll learn about upcoming events and get access to individual webinar registration pages.

Here is how it works.

Each week, Wednesday at 2PM Eastern Time (11AM Pacific), we get together virtually via Zoom.

1. The first 20 minutes.

Every session will include a “featured networker,” which is a person from the greater evaluation community. We’ll kick off each event with a Q&A, talking about their job, their experiences, and their connection with the evaluation world.

2. The next 10 minutes.

Small group introductions. We’ll split into breakout groups, and spend a few minutes introducing ourselves to each other.

3. The final 30 minutes.

For the final 30 we’ll dive into networking, either as a large group or within smaller breakouts. Each week we’ll have a conversation starter topic to help get the group conversation started.

It won’t be recorded, so if you don’t show up there is nothing to watch later. But that also should let you feel free to talk without worrying about showing up forever on the web.

Frequently Asked Questions


What day/time is the next event?
We'll meet on Wednesdays, but since evaluation is a global field we won't stick to one time. As upcoming events are scheduled you'll see them listed, you'll also receive an email heads up with the time/date when a new event gets scheduled.
Will these events be recorded?
No. The goal for these events is to ultimately meet your fellow peers in the evaluation community. We want you to feel comfortable turning on your camera and speaking up.
So will this always be free?
That's the plan. Evaluation workshops draws revenue by offering expert workshops. So if you would like to support us, join a workshop! But you won't have to pay to attend networking events.
Wait, is this a course?
​This is NOT a course. It's just the registration page for an evaluation community. If you register here you'll learn about upcoming events and get access to individual webinar registration pages. And yes, I know it says it's a course. I just didn't feel like going through and changing all the default coded language right now.
