This has been a year of tremendous growth for the EnCompass Learning Center. With a roster of over 25 courses taught by world-renowned faculty, we have welcomed thousands of new learners to our virtual community over the past year. Whether through our open enrollment offerings or special corporate deliveries, we have been humbled by the incredible feedback we’ve received and the number of new learners that have been referred to us by their colleagues! Furthermore, we are grateful to be able to offer special scholarships for the future leaders of evaluation (#YEEs) through our partnerships with EvalYouth and Washington Evaluators.

When we launched the EnCompass Learning Center, we did so with a dream of supplementing our online offerings with special events that would be open to the public and foster dialog within the evaluation community. We are thrilled to announce the first two of what we hope will be many panels and special dialogs over the coming years. While these events are free, space is limited, so be sure to register on our website.

We look forward to seeing you online!
