Empowerment evaluation is designed to build evaluation capacity, cultivate ownership, and produce outcomes. This workshop will highlight theories, concepts, and principles guiding the approach. In addition, the workshop will be highly interactive. During the workshop, participants will gain experience conducting a 3-step approach to empowerment evaluation. Technological tools, ranging from online surveys to videoconferencing and infographic software will be discussed.

Social Network Analysis
Thursday, October 4th, 9am-12pm
This hands-on workshop will take participants through the process of conducting a social network analysis (SNA). SNAs are useful for graphically depicting relationships between entities (e.g., people, organizations) and observing change in those relationships over time. Participants will need to bring a laptop, and download SNA software and a sample dataset for use during the session.

Afternoon 3-hour Workshop
Data Visualization with a Qualitative Twist
Sena (Pierce) Sanjines and Yao Z. Hill
Thursday, October 4th, 1pm-4pm
Why do graphs get to have all the fun? More often than not, evaluators use a mixture of methods and need to report quantitative and qualitative data to diverse audiences. While there are many resources available to learn how to make effective bar charts, there are fewer guides on how to best visualize qualitative data. This workshop seeks to address that gap and will cover general data visualization principles before diving into strategies to visualize qualitative data for common evaluation purposes. Participants will walk away with resources and techniques to visualize qualitative data including making icons and applying color, as well as creating gauge displays, spectrum displays, and timelines. The workshop will be hands-on and provided guided practice to ensure each participant walks away with the ability to create their own qualitative data visualizations.
