Eval10 Session 213: Engaging Social Justice in a Graduate Course on Program Evaluation

The purpose of this roundtable will be to share how issues of social justice are intentionally woven into a graduate course on program evaluation theory. The substance of what is taught, as well as the pedagogy of how it is taught, will aim to expose students to social justice as it relates to evaluation practice. I will share a syllabus that incorporates readings from evaluation theorists who address social justice, as well as course assignments to engage these readings. #MultiethnicIssuesinEvaluation #cultural #2010Conference #competence #social #justice #TeachingofEvaluation

Eval 13: Session 922 - Towards Measuring the Social Impact of Nonprofits and Philanthropies in China

China's miraculous growth in wealth in recent decades has not only lifted millions out of poverty, but it has also led to the growth of the ultra-wealthy and consequently, the growth of the charitable sector. While nascent, the sector has been evolving its identity and infrastructure, including the development of monitoring and evaluation practices. Both government and industry self-imposed controls are shaping the way evaluation will be conducted. This session explores current trends among philanthropic and non-governmental organizations in China, the role of evaluation in their effectiveness, and the priority needs for developing the sector's capacity for evaluation. AEA conference attendees interested in the development of evaluation internationally, in the emergence of non-governmental organizations and philanthropies in Asia, and in cultural competency will find this session engaging and informative

Eval12 Session 654: Don’t Ask, Can’t Report - A Practical Guide to Collecting Data on Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender People in a Culturally Responsive Way

Lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people are included - but often invisible - in many evaluations. In light of increased federal attention to LGBT-specific data collection and the growing awareness of disparities faced by this population, evaluators must be prepared to consider how programs and policies affect LGBT people. However, evaluators are often at a loss for the best ways to ask about sexual orientation. Furthermore, we may inadvertently ask questions about gender in ways that marginalize transgender people, making them invisible to researchers and service providers. This skill-building workshop provided best practices for assessing sexual orientation and gender identity in youth and adult populations

Eval12 Session 769: Ignite Your engagement: Collaborative, Participatory, and Empowerment Issues Explored Through Ignite Presentations

This slide and handout were used in 2012 AEA annual conference. The presentation is about one important cultural dimension the power distance in explaining the relationship between empowerment and evaluation outcomes and the moderating effect of supports from high-social-status stakeholders.
