Culturally Responsive Indigenous Evaluation (CRIE) Workshop

September 26, 2017 9:00am-5:00pm

Fiona Cram  Nicole Bowman

Presenters:

Fiona Cram, Ph.D., Director, Katoa Ltd, Aotearoa New Zealand

Nicole R. Bowman, Ph.D., President, Bowman Performance Consulting

Brief Workshop Description:

 Culturally Responsive Indigenous Evaluation (CRIE) is an emerging evaluation model that is flexible and has been implemented in multiple Indigenous contexts (international, Reservation, urban, and rural). These diverse Indigenous contexts provide fertile grounds to implement, test, and give insight to the CRIE model. Using case studies and interactive group activities, this workshop will provide the theoretical, methodological, and practical applications of CRIE being implemented in diverse contexts, for diverse projects, and with diverse Indigenous participants and organizations. The interactive workshop content is structured around key questions that help guide workshop participants through the CRIE model: 1. What are the foundations and critical components of CRIE? 2. How can the developmental components of the CRIE model be applied generally to the current evaluation work you do? 3. Where has the CRIE model been tested and what have we learned?

Translating Contemporary Culturally Responsiveness for Actionable Evaluation Practices for and with Latinx Communities

September 26, 2017 8:00am-12:00pm

AponteSoto%20Headshot_2017      Neubauer%20Headshot_2017

Presenters:

Lisa Aponte-Soto, National Program Deputy Director of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation New Connections program at Equal Measure

Leah C. Neubauer, Assistant Professor of Preventive Medicine, Feinberg School of Medicine, Northwestern University

Brief Workshop Description:

This workshop will focus on translating contemporary culturally responsiveness for actionable evaluation practices for and with Latinx communities. Enacting culturally responsive evaluation (CRE) with diverse multinational, racial, and ethnic Latinx communities demands highly skilled evaluators who can employ evaluation approaches which align and support diverse perspectives in all evaluation phases.  The session will begin with a brief history of social justice oriented evaluation theories, CRE, and Latino Critical Race Theory (LatCrit). This paradigmatic framing will provide a foundation to discuss the nine-step CRE process in action with Latinx communities. Facilitators will highlight synthesized literature and draw on their own indigenous praxis-oriented perspectives. Participants should come prepared to ‘dig deep’ and share their experiences with Latinx-focused evaluation planning and practice.

Utilization of a Racial Equity Lens to Help Guide Strategic Engagement and Evaluation

September 26, 2017 1:00pm-5:00pm

Presenters:

Paul Elam, Ph.D., and Willard Walker, Public Policy Associates, Inc.

Christopher Dunbar, Ph.D., Professor, University of Illinois

LaShaune Johnson, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Creighton University

Brief Workshop Description:

This workshop focuses on the practical use of a racial equity lens when conducting evaluation.  The framework argues that culture and race are important considerations when conducting an evaluation because we believe that there are both critical and substantive nuances that are often missed, ignored, and/or misinterpreted when an evaluator is not aware of the culture of those being evaluated.

Participants will be provided with a Template for Analyzing Programs through a Culturally Responsive and Racial Equity Lens, designed to focus deliberately on an evaluation process that takes race, culture, equity, and community context into consideration.
