    Not Your Grandmother’s Logic Model: Centering People Before Process

    Led by the Washington Evaluators, January 18, 5:00 - 6:30pm ET


    Logic models are a staple of evaluation practice, but the why and how we do them must evolve. The pandemic has uncovered several social and political fractures within communities. Without action, the pandemic could deepen and prolong economic hardship in communities across the United States, especially communities of color. With this in mind, it is imperative that today’s logic model and companion theory of change framework be used in a culturally responsive way and be designed with an appreciation of targeted and measurable community needs. Traditional logic models, for the most part, have long been process-centered. However, the disproportionate impacts of the pandemic demands that logic models become more people-centered.  


    We invite you to join our esteemed panelists, Cynthia Phillips, Quisha Brown, and Marisol Meyer as they discuss how to bring people-centered authenticity to the logic model process. Participants should prepare to be challenged to unlearn some things you think you know about logic modeling. We ask that you come open to strategies that can help strengthen your use of logic models in elevating your evaluation practice.

    Cost-Inclusive Evaluation: Why, What, How?

    Led by the Washington Evaluators, February 8, 11:00am - 12:00pm ET

    ‘‘Everyone talks about costs . . . but nobody evaluates them!’’ Actually, that paraphrasing of Mark Twain’s witticism is no longer entirely true. Due perhaps to an overwrought concern about lack of expertise in measuring costs, combined with a strong preference to evaluate outcomes that are more socially and politically acceptable than crass ‘‘cash,’’ evaluation has devoted overwhelmingly more articles, pages, courses, and workshops to measuring and improving outcomes than to measuring, let alone improving, costs. This, however, has begun to change. I suggest that we are now entering the age of cost-inclusive evaluation (CIE).

    Now, in the second decade of the 21st Century, there are numerous ways to include costs in formative as well as summative evaluations to improve use of those evaluations in planning, advocacy, and philanthropy. Building on Henry Levin's ingredients model from the 1970s that conceptualized costs not as price but as the types, amounts, and monetary values of resources consumed by a program, today's many forms of cost-inclusive evaluation (CIE) also consider program activities, for more formative evaluation, nonmonetary outcomes such as Quality-Adjusted Life Years Gained, and societal-level impacts on future expenditures and future incomes for individual program clients as well as for society at large.

    This webinar by Dr. Brian Yates explores a model-based contemporary taxonomy of CIEs, provides up-to-date examples of each, and suggests which forms of CIE can best for which program, for which purpose. This talk also notes strategies for recognizing and reducing racial, gender, and age discrimination in CIE.

    Words Matter: Adopting Inclusive and Non-Violent Language

    Led by the Washington Evaluators, February 24, 12:00 - 1:00pm ET

    Respect for people is a foundational guiding principle in the field of evaluation. We strive to promote equity and honor the dignity and wellbeing of individuals and groups. As such, we are trained to create surveys and tools with inclusive response options, select images for our materials and reports that reflect the diversity of program participants and cultures, and engage partners in culturally responsive and collaborative ways.

    But what about the words and phrases we use in our meetings and reports? What is the language we are using saying about the values we hold, both individually and collectively?

    Elizabeth Grim will focus this presentation on how we can adopt inclusive and non-violent language in our work as evaluators. Using real world examples, the talk will begin with common phrases and suggested alternatives. The presentation will include opportunities for attendees to provide examples, alternatives, and questions from their work. Attendees will leave with tangible examples of how to incorporate inclusive and non-violent language in their meetings, materials, and reports.
