Evidence Matters: Building Great Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships, Part II – After the Evaluation

This interactive session hosted by the Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities and King County (Seattle) Metro Transit will explore the benefits of continued strong partnerships after an impact evaluation’s results are in — through deeper understanding of results, dissemination, and continuous learning.

Our panel will highlight lessons learned and challenge misconceptions by exploring King County studies on reducing failure to appear in court, preventing homelessness, and improving the food safety rating system.

Notre Dame’s Wilson Sheehan Lab for Economic Opportunities works closely with innovative social sector agencies to identify evidence-based, scalable programs that help people move out of poverty. Join us on Wednesday, 01/26/2022, from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. ET.

Carrie Cihak, Chief of Policy at King County Metro, will facilitate this session. May Lynn Tan, Assistant Deputy Director at Evidence for Action (RWJF), will moderate the discussion.
