Join the Learning, Evaluation & Data (LEAD) Impact Group for a conversation with Dr. Matthew Soldner, National Center for Education Evaluation Commissioner and Chief Evaluation Officer at the U.S. Department of Education, following the release of the Department of Education’s first-ever learning agenda. As a follow up to the November 2021 learning session, Dr. Soldner will provide an update on the evaluation efforts of ED followed by a robust discussion of how philanthropy and federal government can better align when it comes to topics we care about – data, evaluation and learning.

This event is intended for members and other education grantmakers.
