Evidence in Crisis Webinar 22 October

We are living in a time where the word ‘crisis’ is becoming ever more commonplace in the discourse of both public policy and decision making in public and private sector organisations. Equally, and for a number of years, the role and influence of experts and the evidence they bring to the decision-making process has been challenged multiple times. It is in this context that we are searching for the place of evidence and expertise, to what extent does strong evidence lead to better better decisions? At Traverse we have a social impact objective:

To support evidence-based and inclusive decision making, enabling a more inclusive society with better outcomes for all.

In order to help us on this journey we would like to invite you to a virtual round table to explore four elements of how we might use evidence in a crisis:

  • Reliability – how do we ensure people have confidence in the findings
  • Relevance – to what extent does our work say something about the world in which we live
  • Timeliness - the work that is needed now
  • Challenge – findings are thought provoking and stimulate debate

To help examine these questions and provoke debate with you we will be joined by

Professor Catherine Lido - Professor- Psychology and Adult Learning, School of Education, University of Glasgow

Dr Tim Chadbourn – President of the UK Evaluation Society

Prof Simon Bell - Emeritus Professor, Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering & Mathematics and former Bayswater Institute CEO

We hope that through your participation we will identify key questions and themes that will form a future series of webinars that will be of wider benefit to all who rely upon evidence in their roles in policy and practice.
