Volunteer Organizations for Professional Evaluation


About VOPEs

Voluntary Organizations for Professional Evaluation (VOPEs) is an umbrella term for all kinds of groups interested in advancing evaluation as a profession. VOPEs can function at regional and national levels, and bring together evaluation practitioners from various fields – including government, academia and non-governmental organizations.

VOPEs promote equity-focused and gender-responsive evaluations, and aim to influence organizational and national evaluation policies in benefit of society at large.

EvalPartners Equity & Gender Innovation Challenge

Posted on: July 21, 2015

VOPEs are invited to participate in EvalPartners Equity & Gender Innovation Challenge. We invite innovative projects with an explicit spotlight on VOPE initiatives looking at evaluations that have made a positive difference with equity and gender policy. The specific focus for proposals should be evaluations that can ‘make a difference’:

1. Applications might focus on undertaking an innovative ‘use’ strategy for an existing evaluation

2. Applications might focus on an evaluation which has involved a use strategy as part of its original design

To participate, fill in the Entry Form (Annex I) and send it to innovationchallenge@ioce.net by September 14, 2015, midnight GMT-12.
