NCJA Webinar - Evidence Based Policymaking: Lessons from the Field

Monday May 11, 2015 - 03:00pm to 04:30pm EDT
Event Description: 

Over the last decade, justice and human service agencies have been under growing pressure to demonstrate that interventions and programs are not only effective but provide a solid return on investment. With a mounting body of science that shows which interventions work; decision makers are increasingly focused on how to best integrate this knowledge into program interventions, management strategies and funding decisions. Evidence Based Policy Making: Lessons from the Field will take a close look at the Evidence-based Policymaking: A Guide for Effective Government report from the Pew-MacArthur Foundation’s Results First Initiative and highlight two examples from the field. Speakers from New Mexico and Massachusetts will discuss how their states have used evidence to inform funding and practice decisions; ultimately changing how justice and human service interventions are administered across their respective states.

Speakers for this webinar are:

Pew Speakers
•  Torey Silloway, research manager, Pew-MacArthur Results First Initiative
•  Ashleigh Holand, manager, state policy, The Pew Charitable Trusts
