Equitable Evaluation: Making sure all voices are heard

Equitable Evaluation: Making sure all voices are heard
We’re online! This workshop will be presented online through Zoom. All registrants will receive the access link and password via email the day before the event.

Nonprofits and foundations use evaluation — intentionally gathering and analyzing information about programs and impact in order to inform decisions and strategy — to make sure their efforts are forwarding their mission.

While many individuals and organizations 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.

Designed for both foundation and nonprofit staff, this introductory workshop will cover:

  • 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

Price: $60
Free for GVSU students/staff/faculty

Deadline to register: Wednesday, September 30


This workshop will be a live, interactive experience. It will not be recorded or available to registrants after the end of the live session.
