Evaluation is often a passive process. A professional comes in, collects data, provides a report on outputs or outcomes, and leaves. However, this is not the full picture, or potential, of evaluation. The evaluation process and collected data are tools to help make actual change, and the purpose of evaluation is to ultimately contribute to the greater good. In this session, we’ll explore the practice of Culturally Responsive Evaluation (CRE), which is defined by its inclusive, asset-focused practices, and begin to examine how we can apply CRE in our own organizations.

Prerequisite: Creating a Theory of Change, Activating Your Theory of Change (or equivalent experience)

A working theory of change is key to all of the skills taught in our nonprofit management programs so we encourage participants to 1) bring a current theory of change or logic model to relevant workshops, or 2) attend a Creating a Theory of Change workshop before attending any other of our nonprofit management programs. If you’re unable to do either, please take some time in advance of your chosen workshop to consider your own program or organization’s purpose and goals. You may find a useful resource.
