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.”
