Evaluation in the Era of #MeToo

In a post for the American Evaluation Association’s AEA265 blog, TCC staff members Kate Locke and Rose Konecky wrote about the intersection of sexual harassment and social sector evaluation, exploring how issues raised by the #MeToo movement have come up in their work as evaluators. The piece is excerpted below, with the full content available on AEA365 as part of AEA’s Feminist Issues in Evaluation series.

One of the most important social movements in the last decade became well-known for its effects in the entertainment, news, and political spheres. But it also strongly affects evaluators, and AEA has a responsibility and an opportunity to be responsive to it.

Greetings! We are Kate Locke, Associate Director of Evaluation and Learning and Rose Konecky, Consultant at TCC Group, a mission-driven consulting firm working in the social sector. When we heard the conference theme “Speaking Truth to Power” for AEA’s 2018 conference, we were very energized and wanted to use the theme to explore an issue weighing on both of us—how have issues raised by the #MeToo movement come up in our work as evaluators and as AEA members? We ultimately facilitated a roundtable looking at where we (as a field and as a professional association) have been, where we are going, and what we can do better in terms of keeping evaluators safe from harassment.
