Leslye will facilitate a discussion that explores how diversity & inclusiveness considerations can be incorporated into the evaluation process, as well as how evaluators perceive their personal role in advancing the diversity & inclusiveness conversation in the field.
How are diversity & inclusiveness currently framed in evaluation research? How has this changed?
What are some common missteps among evaluators in this arena?
What are some unique issues in Colorado related to inclusive evaluation?
How can diversity & inclusiveness considerations be integrated into each phase of the evaluation process?
Which strategies and efforts do you personally employ in order to: Enhance your cultural self-awareness and practical intercultural communication skills? Improve the overall level of cultural awareness in evaluation?
Do participants have stories of evaluation strategies that went well?
Please bring your questions and insights to share from your own evaluation experience. Also bring a colleague!
Upcoming months will feature culturally relevant evaluation on August 23, evaluation in foundations in September, health program evaluation on October 25, and evaluation capacity building on November 29. Our annual meeting will be in early December.
