Culturally Responsive and Equity-Focused Evaluations: The Eval MatrixTM
A Washington Evaluators and Colorado Evaluation Network Co-Sponsored Event led by American University and the Strategy Learning Partners for Innovation, September 27th, 12:00-1:00pm ET
Registration for this event is through a third-party. Information and registration link can be found below.
Using evaluation to build a more equitable future requires evaluation approaches and evaluator mindsets that attend to issues of power at the individual, interpersonal and structural levels. This session will present an interactive tool, the Eval MatrixTM, that summarizes key principles of seven evaluation approaches and philosophies, including:
• Culturally competent evaluation
• Culturally responsive evaluation
• Culturally responsive and equitable evaluation
• Culturally responsive indigenous evaluation
• Empowerment evaluation
• Equity-focused evaluation
• Transformative evaluation
The tool is an interactive matrix that provides a definition of each philosophy or approach, describes its history, identifies unique contributions, summarizes its views on the seven key principles of culturally responsive and equity-focused evaluation, and includes references to seminal publications. Presenters will guide the audience through the tool to help them find the information that is most relevant to them and determine which approach might be most appropriate for the goals and values of a given project.
By attending this demonstration, evaluators may be able to draw ideas for framing, methods and dissemination to create stronger proposals and develop more equitable and inclusive evaluation designs that will contribute to social change.
The Eval MatrixTM with Katrina L. Bledsoe, Ph.D., Blanca Flor Guillen-Woods, and Felisa Gonzales. Moderated by AU Measurement & Evaluation students Shikha B., Kelly Reynolds, and Yasemin S..
