Brown Bag Lunch & Learn – Equitable Evaluation: Whose voice counts?
March 27 @ 11:30 AM – 1:00 PM
While many organizations in the philanthropic sector have begun to bring an equity and inclusion lens to their work, few have addressed the issue of how evaluation practices can be made more equitable. Who asks the questions, who owns the data, and who interprets the data — it all matters.
In this session, you’ll learn about:
- The commonly held beliefs that underlie most approaches to evaluation and how they can undermine equity
- Core principles of equitable evaluation
- Resources available to advance your own thinking and work
Led by: Teri Behrens, executive director of the Johnson Center
