Hi, I’m Elizabeth McGee, Founder and Senior Consultant at LEAP Consulting, helping nonprofits, foundations, and public institutions achieve impact through meaningful evaluations and strategic support.
How we carry out our work as evaluators has a direct impact on the way programs and organizations see themselves, interpret their data, make recommendations and learn lessons. Ensuring that Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) considerations are built into all stages of the evaluation processes is critical to ensuring DEI isn’t just a touted evaluative value, but an integral part of our practice.
The following is an overview of practical ways to embed DEI considerations into each stage of your evaluation approach.
Public Profit offers a great resource called Dabbling in the Data, which offers a hands-on guide to participatory data analysis.
