Paul Elam will be leading a workshop titled Utilization of Racial Equity Lens to Help Guide Strategic Engagement and Evaluation. He will be joined by Professor Christopher Dunbar, Assistant Professor LaShuane Johnson, and PPA senior policy consultant Willard Walker.
This workshop focuses on the practical use of a racial equity lens when conducting evaluation. Over the past three years, Public Policy Associates, Inc. (PPA) has worked to develop useful frameworks, tools, and approaches that evaluators could consider to focus on the ways that race and culture might influence an evaluation process; this has resulted in the development of a framework for conducting evaluation using a racial equity lens.
Participants were provided with a Template for Analyzing Programs through a Culturally Responsive and Racial Equity Lens, designed to focus deliberately on an evaluation process that takes race, culture, equity, and community context into consideration.
The conference brings together evaluators, evaluation scholars, students, and evaluation users to assemble, share, and learn. This year’s theme is From Learning to Action. The conference will explore the four ways that the evaluation community can learn from each other and put theory into action. Attendees will have the opportunity to attend a variety of sessions including demonstrations, expert lectures, roundtables, and panels. Register now to take part in AEA’s annual conference.
