IEA invites the evaluation community in Indiana and beyond to join us for our fourth biennial (but first virtual) conference! This interactive, multi-day event is designed to equip evaluators with the skills they need to help their organizations and clients succeed in a more equitable, post-crisis world. Please view the conference schedule. 

Keynote Speaker - Martha Brown

IEA is excited to host Dr. Martha Brown  as our 2021 Keynote Speaker. Dr. Brown is a Restorative Justice & Trauma-Informed Practices Specialist who brings trauma-informed restorative justice values, theories, and practices into her work as an evaluation consultant with Hamai Consulting. She received her doctorate in Curriculum & Instruction from Florida Atlantic University and is an accomplished author, evaluator, program designer, presenter, trainer, and teacher. Her keynote workshop will increase evaluators’ awareness of trauma and the need for trauma-sensitive evaluation practices.
