Exemplary Culturally Responsive Evaluation

Nov 13, 2015 9:45am ‐ Nov 13, 2015 10:45am


As the evaluation field moves more firmly into culturally competent evaluations – those that acknowledge systems, practices and assumptions within the self, the space, and the community – we examine its use and foundations. Panelists explore the use of cultural competence (also referred to as cultural responsiveness or cultural humility) as an equity tool that brings evaluators and stakeholders to a shared understanding of need and strategy. Panelists describe the ways they apply this competence, including self-knowledge, to achieve justice in evaluations and to create more meaningful outcomes. Lessons learned that inform how evaluators might scale cultural competence’s international application, how we apply such competence when working in other nations and how cultural competence manifests in these international contexts are discussed.
