Understanding the role values and culture play in both designing evaluations and building a more equitable future has become increasingly important as the field has matured and expanded its reach into various disciplines and contexts. The need for culturally responsive skills and dispositions are required of evaluators working in multicultural evaluation settings and with diverse populations. This panel of national and international senior evaluation leaders will discuss their knowledge and historical perspectives regarding the status of cultural responsiveness in evaluation and its application to various practice settings. Three themes will be discussed – Theoretical Developments in Culturally Responsive Evaluation, Evaluator Competencies in Culturally Responsive Evaluation Practice, and Organizational Capacity for Culturally Responsive Evaluation. It is expected that these conversations will engage participants as they acquire and reflect upon strategies for imbedding cultural responsiveness into their own evaluation practice as well as developing a network of professional supports and relationships.
