Conference program

From the paper abstract: “As part of the last CREA Conference, a panel of culturally responsive evaluators explored the personal traits and experiences that helped to shape their worldview and dispositions toward evaluation. As a follow up to that session, an expanded panel will again explore interactions between the personal, professional, and community commitments that influence how an evaluator does their work. We begin the discussion with examining the dynamics when an evaluator works in a community they know well, and then extend the analysis to the situation where they work in similar but distant communities. When working in your community of origin, in what understandings can you place confidence during an attempt to be culturally responsive? How far from a familiar home base, can or should the evaluator feel confident of their ability to be responsive? When preparing to enter a familiar but distant space, what cautions might we suggest?”

Conference program

From the paper abstract: “Through an United States Department of Agriculture funded and congressionally mandated study that includes the 567 tribal governments and Alaskan Native villages in the United States, session participants will learn how the principals of Tribally Driven Participatory Research (TDPR) can be utilized in research and evaluation studies. The emphasis of this session will be not only on understanding the conceptual and theoretical foundations to TDPR but also the practical implementation of TDPR as an effective model for creating highly effective and culturally responsive Tribal/academic research partnerships. Participants will be engaged through active discussion, will learn about the strengths and challenges of this model, and will be given many resources to help inform their future practice.”

Conference program

From the symposium abstract: “The session includes a description of four evaluation designs that are being incorporated into the evaluation guidebook. The designs highlight critical points in the complex and often unpredictable processes of changing the basic paradigms on which our social systems are built in regard to race. The designs are grounded within communities but reach inward and outward from that pivotal point with attention to honoring all voices. Investment design, implementation, and evaluation all work together to increase racial equity that generates significant practical returns in the form of improved social and economic outcomes for vulnerable populations.”
