Evaluating Activism

September 21, 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Mānoa Campus, John A. Burns Hall, Room 3012, 1601 East-West Road

Please join us for a Public Seminar with Annette L. Gardner, Assistant Professor, Department of Social and Behavioral Sciences, School of Nursing and Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies, University of California San Francisco

The 2016 U.S. election has shifted the political landscape, bringing advocacy to the fore. Advocates are using diverse strategies and tactics, such as organizing creative protests, signing daily electronic petitions, and showing up in force at town hall meetings. Without thoughtful reflection, advocacy strategies are unlikely to result in intended policy mobilization and impact. In this seminar, political scientist and professional evaluator Annette Gardner will present an overview of evaluation concepts and approaches to strengthening advocacy practice.

Annette L. Gardner, PhD, MPH has designed, directed and served as an advisor on national, state and local research studies and evaluations focusing on expanding access to care, insurance coverage, advocacy capacity, and the adoption of health information technology. She directed an 8-year evaluation of The California Endowment's Clinic Consortia Policy and Advocacy Program that paved the way for advocacy and policy change evaluation more broadly. She is the Director of the Philip R. Lee Institute’s evaluation community of practice. Gardner has co-authored a book with Claire Brindis, DPh, entitled Advocacy and Policy Change Evaluation: Theory and Practice (Stanford University Press, 2017).
