Roundtable Organizers:  Carolyn Hill, MDRC
Moderators:  Carolyn Hill, MDRC
Speakers:  Mary Hyde, Office of Research and Evaluation, Corporation for National and Community Service, Brian Bumbarger, Pennsylvania State University and Gary VanLandingham, Pew Charitable Trusts

The idea is that the roundtable will now have one perspective from the federal government (NCNS SIF), one from state government (EPISCenter), and one from a foundation (Pew-MacArthur Results First initiative) on strategies they have used to promote evidence-based approaches. Roundtable participants will discuss the policies, processes, challenges, and strategies for promoting evidence-based policies from these three different perspectives. Panelists will discuss the unique roles that each type of actor can play, under what circumstances; as well as synergies of efforts by the different actors.
