This year’s conference theme, "Strength in Numbers," is a celebration of a decade of data-informed progress from across our network and an opportunity to discuss our future direction. Join us for our 10th-anniversary celebration. We will look back at the evidence-informed progress we’ve made as a sector but also look forward to the pressing issues of the day. This year the event will take place at the Charles Hotel in Cambridge, MA from May 20–22, 2019.

It was important that the process be aligned to the team’s strategy and equity goals, and that an effective system was in place to measure progress towards those goals. This roundtable will discuss the following questions: What are the important factors to consider when evaluating competing ideas that have different levels of risk and reward? How can organizations ensure their work is aligning to equity goals and what are effective ways to measure progress towards meeting those goals?
