On July 12, 2023, JLI MEAL Hub members had the opportunity to learn about Culturally Responsive Evaluation (CRE) with guest speaker Dr. Wanda Casillas. CRE provides a way of understanding how culture influences us as diverse MEAL practitioners and program stakeholders, and adjusting responsively in ways that support social justice. Dr. Casillas is an Associate Research Professor at Claremont Graduate University, an instructor at The Evaluators’ Institute, and an independent evaluator with extensive experience in designing and implementing CRE, particularly in education and healthcare settings in the USA.
Join the Monitoring, Evaluation, Accountability and Learning Hub. Every other month, the group will host a learning exchange on MEAL and local faith actors. Learn more about the Hub here.
