The Northeastern University Public Evaluation Lab (NU-PEL) and the Greater Boston Evaluation Network (GEBN) will be co-hosting our 3rd virtual event in our Culturally Responsive Evaluation (CRE) series. 

As our world calls for evaluation that is multiculturally valid, honors the multiple truths of a range of communities, and is in service of equitable change, many evaluators are seeking to bridge theory to practice in their work. This 90-minute interactive learning session creates the environment for attendees enhance their reflective practice and draft a learning + action agenda to apply what they are learning about culturally responsive and racial equity evaluation.

Participants will:

  1. Debrief individual results from MPHI's How Culturally Responsive is My Practice? self-assessment.
  2. Discuss results within the contexts of their evaluands, evaluation teams, and organizations
  3. Crowdsource resources and draft outlines of their own customized Learning + Action Agenda for Conducting Evaluation Using a Culturally Responsive and Racial Equity Lens

You must register for the event to receive the online meeting information. On the registration form, there are 3 basic demographic questions that are optional to answer. You may choose to skip those questions. Your answers to the registration questions will not be shared outside of the presenter. Dr. Mindelyn Anderson and the Mirror Group asks these questions for those to reflect on who they are as part of the self-assessment process. 

We are fortunate to have Mindelyn Anderson, PhD lead us in this learning session.
