The theme of the third annual convening is Building Evidence, Advancing Policy, Impacting Lives (#BuildAdvanceImpact). Over the course of two days, panel and breakout sessions will demonstrate how rigorous evidence can help state and local governments shape policy to improve the lives of the people they serve, and in particular those living in poverty. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about and engage with the full life cycle of evidence generation and use, from developing and implementing randomized evaluations to the continued refining and testing of programs.
