Evaluating Advocacy Efforts
How is evaluating advocacy different from program or other types of evaluation? What skills, tools or knowledge is needed when evaluating advocacy?
Join Jill Lipski Cain and Sara Stalland as they share their experiences and overcoming challenges in evaluating advocacy efforts. They will provide details about an evaluation for Research!America, which influences congressional support for global health research. The evaluation looked at several issues, including whether any members of congress became champions for global health research. They will also share some ways that other projects – such as the State Health Improvement Program, The Line Campaign, and the Sexual Assault Program of Beltrami, Cass Hubbard Counties - incorporate advocacy into their systems and direct service programs, and how these stretched our traditional evaluation approaches.
We hope to hear your experiences in evaluating advocacy, too – and get a lively discussion going!

Location: Phillips Family Foundation: 615 1st Ave NE, Ste 300, Minneapolis, MN 55413
