"Intersectionality as Critical Inquiry, Method and Practice: Moving Beyond Nominal Categories and False Dichotomies in Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment"

 

Purpose

Escalating domestic and global tensions in social, political, and economic institutions require that we urgently expand how we conceptualize our work, to end under-representation of the issues facing People of Color. When we frame the issues and opportunities that define our work, understanding intersectionality is essential if we are to avoid prioritizing the needs of some over the conditions of others. Too often we ignore the cumulative effect on those at the intersection of multiple sources of inequity. Refining our lens to see these issues more clearly is of paramount importance to culturally responsive practice.

Themes

The CREA 2019 theme of Intersectionality as Critical Inquiry, Method and Practice will focus on the following areas as pertaining to program evaluation, measurement, and assessment:

  • Problematizing arbitrary categories and false dichotomies
  • Cultural responsiveness drawing upon multiple perspectives of meaning
  • Reexamining professional practice to incorporate and promote intersectional understanding
  • Policies and practices of influence and consequence in the quest for social justice
  • Ethical challenges in maximizing justice with intersecting areas of inquiry
  • Rejecting use of intersectionality to eclipse strategic examination of the component issues
