Wednesday, May 18, 2022, 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM
Fee: Free

You've got questions. We want to help you get them answered. This is the fifth in a new series of our free Bite-Sized Learning events titled "Ask Me Anything." We hear about nonprofit trends and topics and bring experts in to field your questions. Nonprofits of all sizes are welcome. This one-hour session will be in Zoom meeting room format.

Do you have questions about how to measure your organization’s impact and tell your story? Are you trying to decide which program evaluation method will get you the data you need? Looking for resources to do evaluation on your own? Join two experienced Wilder Research staff as they field your program evaluation questions. Bring your questions about creating client surveys or logic models, understanding your data, reporting to funders, and more. (Re)discover your inner research geek with us!

The Bite-Sized Learning events are designed by MCN’s Greater Minnesota team to keep us connected across the state. While the topics are chosen to meet the needs of Greater Minnesota, all are welcome here.

RSVP for this event on Zoom.

Facilitator Information

Edith Gozali-Lee, Research Scientist
For more than 20 years, Edith has directed research and evaluation studies in the areas of education and human services. Her work includes outcome evaluation, longitudinal studies, and demonstration project studies of programs primarily in the area of education and youth development. She has extensive experience working with school districts and community organizations to produce research that is useful for program, organization, and system improvements. Edith has a doctorate in human development and family studies from Iowa State University, a master's degree in child development, and a bachelor's degree in psychology.

Ryan Evans, Research Scientist
Ryan Evans is an organizational consultant and participatory artist. He specializes in consulting projects that focus on the arts, culture and disability, with particular expertise in qualitative and participatory methods. He has a master’s degree in applied anthropology and community arts from the University of London – Goldsmiths College and bachelor’s degree in sociology/anthropology and theatre from St. Olaf College. He has completed additional graduate-level coursework in organizational planning, participatory research, and nonprofit financial management.
Ryan’s work is grounded by the shared idea of “fieldwork” in both research and the arts; he is energized by expansive conceptualizations of data and artful approaches to collecting, managing and analyzing it. Most recently, Ryan was commissioned by the St. David’s Society of Minnesota to facilitate Today’s Harlech, a participatory art project that explores Welshness in Minnesota through singing, writing, and storytelling. When not consulting with organizations or facilitating participatory art projects, Ryan spends his time with his partner Sarah and their tuxedo cat Mei and greyhound Rosie. He is an avid biker (in the warmer months) and often performs as Aros E-V, his personal sound art practice.
