    Although the CES annual conference has been postponed until next year, the Student Case Competition is going ahead!

    The Student Case Competition has a long history of helping to cultivate emerging evaluators in Canada but this year we’re trying something different – we’re going online! Two teams will be competing in this year’s second round (Simon Fraser University and the University of Waterloo) to see who will be crowned this year’s champion.

    CES recognition of responsibility for improving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    Ethics in the New Normal: Getting Through and Beyond COVID-19 (FREE webinar)

    Last month, we posted about a free webinar from EPAC on ethics challenges during COVID-19. Now, EPAC will be hosting a follow-up webinar! See below for details. EPAC’s highly popular April 9 brainstorming webinar focussed on current ethics challenges in the COVID-19 period. Participants wanted more; so our next webinar will look to the post-COVID future: What ethical challenges will arise when some organizations ramp up to resume their suspended operations, while others pivot in new directions? And how should ethics in organizations ‘ramp up’, or will it need to ‘pivot’ too? Will there be novel ethical issues in how to treat employees? The facilitators will again be Chris MacDonald,…
