The workshop will have two parts.

“Understanding Community Contexts through Place-Based Evaluations”

The morning session (9:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.) will focus on how thinking evaluatively can help community organizations better respond to local context and the heterogeneous needs within a community. It will include presentations and discussion with leaders of prominent community organizations, and leaders in spatial analysis with experience in fields such as health, social housing, and crime. This workshop will appeal to planners, evaluators and staff of community organizations.

“Spatial Analysis in Evaluation: Methods and Insights”

The afternoon session (1:00-3:00 p.m.) will focus on the role of spatial analysis in making sense of patterns in community data. This session will be highly intuitive and appeal to analysts working in policy and community settings. Space for this workshop is very limited.  We are aiming to create a more interactive space for discussion and dialogue among a diverse array of community organizations, as well as policymakers and evaluators.
