Join the Northeastern University Public Evaluation Lab (NU-PEL) and GBEN's for the 4th event in our Culturally-Responsive Evaluation (CRE) series.
We are excited to have Dr. Mindelyn Anderson, PhD, return to discuss how to build CRE into the design of an evaluation. Dr. Anderson presented in November 2021 on developing a learning and action agenda to conduct culturally responsive and racial equity evaluation.
Dr. Anderson will walk through a real life case example building CRE into evaluation." She asks that GBEN and NU-PEL attendees provide sample RFPs 2 weeks before the event. Dr. Anderson will select 1 RFP for the hands-on interactive assignment. RFPs can be emailed to Kelly Washburn, firstname.lastname@example.org and she will compile and send to Dr. Anderson. Please send RFP examples by Thursday, March 17th.
For those who did not attend the event in November, it may be useful to read the materials shared as pre-work.
