Data Science & Evaluation: Innovating for Social Impact
Join SFBAE for this mixer welcoming professionals sitting between Data Science and Social Impact areas. As the data science field explodes, how can we learn across industries to increase our collective social impact? How do we translate needs across the trades to tackle issues? What can evaluators learn from data scientists in the private industry those working across sectors? Can data science develop solutions to social issues? Come out for a lively facilitated discussion and discuss challenges in this theme shared by professionals in both Data Science and Evaluation.

What we're about

This group is for anyone working in or interested in program evaluation or applied research in the Bay Area. Our aim is to create a member-led space to share experiences and resources, brainstorm ideas and ask questions about our fields and make stronger connections. We discuss topics such as evaluation use, applied research techniques, managing expectations, internal evaluation issues, consulting, technology in evaluation and cultural competence, to name a few. We also work to support professional development opportunities and educational activities in areas of interest to members.

We are pleased to announce that the San Francisco Bay Area Evaluators will be joining our efforts to continue these discussions and opportunities!

All are welcome to join: program evaluators, consulting professionals, applied researchers , nonprofit administrators and anyone new to or interested in these professional areas.

Let's grow in numbers!
