The great debate
Equity in evaluations
On equity and how to sneak it into evaluations – slow the processes down to consult or connect properly and weave equity in.
Have tools can share with colleagues. Evaluation is a tool for equity and practice. Become a noisy ally!
Allow the program to set the agenda…#TrojanMice chipping away at the edge and responsibility to exercise it well.
So many different approaches, choice on context. Bang on about #EvaluativeThinking; don’t forget about designing interventions and integrating these spaces.
Barrier to entry is language and terminology – work on definitions. Text processing and adding to evaluations.
Creating real change
