Journeys with Culturally Responsive and Equitable 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. These recorded conversations will be used to develop multiple products, including a final research paper, which will not be developed until the end of the project. All recorded conversations will be de-identified and aggregated within the final research paper. All contributors will be acknowledged in the research paper and will be offered a $50 gift card for their participation. For those interested in a larger role in developing the paper, we will have a call out for contributors in the ETB newsletter, Bench (Re)Marks.
The fields of research and evaluation have a history of excluding and exploiting the voices of historically marginalized and under-supported communities. Historical context and systemic barriers have not always been taken into consideration. Without honoring these contexts, evaluations may be compromised and potentially harm communities. To ensure these voices and contexts are included, ETB promotes CREE, which requires the integration of justice, equity, diversity, inclusion, and engagement in all phases of evaluation.
We hope that you’ll share your story with us!

After you submit your interest form, the ETB team will ensure you are paired with an evaluation colleague for your conversation and will provide you with questions to guide this discussion. We suggest using Zoom or a comparable platform to record your conversation and will provide you with specific technical guidance to ensure the best quality recording.
