Asking Survey Questions About Sex and Gender

Sheila here, writing with my partner in survey design Kim, of Leonard Research & Evaluation with a longform interview with esteemed evaluation colleagues Dylan Felt and Gregory Phillips II. At the time of this writing Dylan is a PhD student in Sociomedical Sciences—Sociology at Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health who studies the social conditions which produce health within transgender populations. Gregory is a tenured Associate Professor at Northwestern University who studies factors associated with health disparities among LGBTQ+ populations. 

Dylan and Gregory have been amazing in their generosity and willingness to share their vast knowledge in this space. We were honored to present a session on asking survey questions about sex and gender at Evaluation 2021, the annual conference of the American Evaluation Association. We’ve been fortunate to stay in touch with them since!
