The Evaluation in Practice Summit is the exciting culmination of the two years of the IMPACT program. Participants from IMPACT courses will reconvene to share their ideas and practice building on their learning throughout the year. The Summit will take place in Toronto on March 14, 2017 and will feature a dynamic mix of networking, facilitated discussions, case study presentations, and plenary sessions.

The Summit is intended to encourage participants to share their organizational stories, learnings and new practices in M&E in both facilitated and informal break-out sessions. We will be seeking your input on what themes or topics you would like to cover within these sessions. 

The Summit will kick off with a plenary session focused on M&E for Change which will explore connecting learnings generated from robust M&E to changing lives and changing minds.

The plenary will be followed by a round of thought-provoking and facilitated topical group discussion sessions.

Following a networking lunch, the first half of the afternoon will feature an exhibition session IMPACT Participants Showcase wherein select organizations will present case studies of new and improved M&E practice. 

The second half of the afternoon will feature the "unconference session" where participants will have the opportunity to dialogue and seek feedback on their own practice through an open sharing session.

The Summit will then conclude with a closing session led by Gender Equality expert Karen Craggs-Milne, called M&E for Transformation. 

Participants are invited to stay for the evening networking event featuring the launch of OCIC’s eMagazine iAM Volume 8: Measure What Matters.


Attendance at the summit is limited to those who have completed at least one IMPACT training stream. Participation is free and registration is required. See below for registration information.
