  • Better Evaluation, Webinar report: Why we need more feminist evaluations. This webinar explored the perspectives of four women who shared their organizations’ experiences in making evaluations more influential in promoting gender equality.
  • Better Evaluation, Blog: Reflections on meeting the challenge of communicating the validity of culturally responsive evaluation (CRE) and getting influential voices and changemakers to listen: Culturally-Responsive Evaluation (CRE) is an approach to evaluation that acknowledges the subjectivity and diversity of knowledge, points of view, and ways of knowing that guide evaluations (EvalCommunity, n.d.). It stresses the impact of evaluators’ knowledge and views on their ability to connect with, comprehend, and provide meaningful results that are relevant to the social and cultural contexts of the communities, cultures, and societies with which they work (Hood et al., 2015). Despite its significance, explaining the legitimacy of CRE to prominent voices and change-makers/decision-makers may be difficult.
