D3: Embedding DEI Concepts to Build Meaningful Relationships between Evaluators and Community Members
Area of Focus: EDI, Belonging, and Justice
Transforming the modern landscape of research and practice related to child- and family well-being requires innovative and meaningful partnerships between researchers and communities. This workshop will provide expertise related to designing and carrying out high-quality program planning and evaluation efforts that pay attention to diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI) aspects and socially just planning methods.
We will also help agency leaders, funders, and evaluators better attend to DEI concepts as they involve community members and people with lived expertise in their planning and evaluation activities. We will provide sample requests for proposals that illustrate how to build some of these concepts into actual funding announcements and a funder’s checklist of key dimensions to consider.
- Practical concepts and tools for designing and carrying out high-quality program planning and evaluation efforts that prioritize DEI and are socially just
- Strategies for increased DEI that involve community members and people with lived expertise in planning and evaluation activities
