EViE is a conference for students of evaluation and novice evaluators (emerging evaluators). It aims to foster dialogue about important topics that are encountered in evaluation theory and practice. EViE provides a forum for the emergent voices in evaluation. The Conference promotes critical thinking, social justice, and relationship development among conference attendees and beyond.
The biennial EViE conference will be held virtually May 18 and 19th, and the theme is Becoming Catalysts: Emerging Evaluators as Agents for Transformative Change.
We are honored and humbled to have Nicole “Nicky” Bowman as this year’s Keynote Speaker.
About Nicky: Nicole “Nicky” Bowman, PhD (Lunaape/Mohican), carries out her work in service to others at the intersection of truth, spirituality, traditional knowledge, sovereignty, governance, and evaluation. Dr. Bowman is a traditional Lunaape/Mohican woman who has been an active Indigenous community member for 40 years and an Indigenous evaluator for over two decades. She is the founder and president of Bowman Performance Consulting (BPC) and an Associate Scientist and Evaluator at the University of Wisconsin–Madison. Dr. Bowman supports a large portfolio of projects advancing radical Indigenous and community-led scholarship with Tribal and non-Tribal governments and philanthropic, non-profit, and private-sector organizations nationally and internationally. She is a member of the American Evaluation Association (AEA) and the Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment (CREA), and has been part of the elected or appointed leadership for AEA, CREA, Indigenous Peoples in Evaluation, and EvalIndigenous. Currently she is also a member of the Canadian Evaluation Society (CES) and the co-editor and co-creator for a new permanent section for Indigenous scholarship called “Roots and Relations” in the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation (CJPE). Dr. Bowman also is the current co-editor for a special global decolonization issue of the Journal of Multidisciplinary Evaluation (JMDE) with Dr. Bagele Chilisa (Bantu Tribe of Africa and post-colonial Botswana scholar). Dr. Bowman has been or is a reviewer and/or journal board member for CJPE, New Directions in Evaluation, American Journal of Evaluation, and JMDE. She earned her PhD in Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis from the University of Wisconsin–Madison in 2015, a Master of Education degree from Lesley University in 1997, and a Bachelor of Arts in Education from St. Norbert College in 1993.
The EViE Conference is hosted by UNC Greensboro’s Department of Educational Research Methodology, and the first four events have been a great success, drawing students from universities in North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee, Michigan, Wisconsin, Georgia, and multiple countries in Africa. EViE features original research and evaluation work from diverse fields such as education, public health, and international development and is intended to serve as a catalyst in promoting collaboration, scholarship, and social justice practices among emerging researchers and evaluators.
