Conference theme: Weaving evaluation into the whole
Evaluation for all
Showcasing the value of evaluation; sharing stories and examples of how evaluation can involve and impact everyone. How evaluation weaves into programs and policies at community, state, and national levels. 
Weaving perspectives
Whose values matter in evaluation; exploring inclusive approaches that embrace the values and perspectives of First Nations people and diverse communities. How these practices enhance the quality of evaluation by weaving in and reconciling the perspectives of the many players involved.
New ways of weaving
Demonstrating the continuing innovation in evaluation practice; engaging with the creativity, adaptation and opportunity in the ever-changing world. How evaluation has adapted amidst acute and chronic challenges.
Materials, patterns and practices
Sharing our favourites; practical illustrations and highlights of old and new tools, methods, and activities for evaluation. How current and emerging evaluators learn from each other to build capability.
