1:00 PM - 2:30 PM Evidence-Informed Policy and Randomized Evaluations
The Suffolk Philosophy Society and the Philosophy Department present an event in the Philosophy Colloquium Series:

Evidence-Informed Policy and Randomized Evaluations: Rigorous Research and Ethical Conduct in Social Policy Studies
Graham Simpson, Policy Associate, J-PAL North America
Geeti Mehra, Policy Associate, J-PAL North America
 
ABSTRACT: What is the effect of extending health insurance to the uninsured? Can cognitive behavioral therapy help males in Chicago stay out of jail? More generally, how can we be confident in estimating the impact of an innovative program? When policymakers have to choose how to spend limited resources on multiple programs, decisions should be informed by rigorous estimates of programs’ casual effects. Policy Associates from MIT’s Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) will discuss the role of randomized evaluations in studying social programs. We will give examples of studies that informed debates in public policy, focusing on the Oregon Health Insurance Experiment, an evaluation of extending Medicaid to low-income, uninsured adults, and an evaluation of Becoming a Man, a school-based Chicago program intended to help at-risk males. We will discuss logistical, political, and ethical concerns surrounding randomized evaluations, offering solutions where possible.

Refreshments will be served.
 
4:00 PM - 5:00 PM Christian Conversations and Bible Study
Come join us in the Interfaith Center (Donahue 540) at 4:00pm!
4:00 PM - 5:30 PM Cutting In-House Legal Spending Through Contract Automation
This program will offer an overview of automated contract assembly and how it can reduce legal department costs. The panelists will describe the inefficiencies they have seen in their legal departments prior to the implementation of automated document assembly; explain how automation made contract creation better, faster, and cheaper; and offer a demonstration of the systems that they use in their practices.

Come and learn how you too can save money and time in your business or practice!

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM Networking for Career Success
You are invited to participate in Networking for Career Success, a training program that teaches networking skills. Networking for Career Success is a unique training experience that takes place in two parts. The first part is a fun, highly interactive, experiential session that replicates a networking cocktail reception with food and drinks.  The second part is a group  “debrief” and where you will receive feedback and suggestions for improving your networking efforts before, during and after events.  At the event, you will receive materials, including a profile that contains very basic information you will use (supplementing facts from your own life) during the exercise. Each profile is strategically designed to have something in common with a number of other people in the room. The goal for you is to find those people by using your networking skills. By the end of this two hour session, you will have a better understanding of how important networking is to career success and how to do it effectively. 

This event is restricted to Sawyer Business School Graduate Students only. 

For full event information and registration please RSVP using password sbsgrad2015.

There is a $25 no-show fee applied to each of these events. If you RSVP, and are unable to attend, you must notify the office within 24 hours.
