This panel will invoke conversations that explore ideas that will challenge the status quo in evaluation. The session will also seek to establish a community of practice for emerging evaluators.  
The panel will introduce emerging evaluators from a range of professional backgrounds. With the focus on ideas that challenge the status quo, each panel member will offer their unique perspective and experience, drawing on ideas around the role of evaluators in alleviating poverty, how evaluation can drive Aboriginal sovereignty, and opportunities for inclusivity and integrating lived experience into evaluation. Facilitated by emerging evaluators, the session will include opportunities for the audience to pose questions to the panel.
