Evolving Evaluation

Evolving Evaluation: Journeys with Culturally Responsive and Equitable Evaluation is a 2-year effort that will engage evaluators in critical reflections of their own journeys, stories, and experiences with evaluation. Through one-on-one recorded conversations with a colleague, we will highlight experiences and examples of culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE) within the field.
