The Network for the Advancement of Black Communities (NABC) in collaboration with the Partnership Investments Team of the Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) is hosting a series on Black Perspectives on Evaluation to create opportunities for deep conversations and learning on how evaluation leadership and practice can advance the wellbeing of Black communities. This series is part of the Black Canadian Communities Evaluation Capacity Building Pilot, which explores how we shift our use of evaluation from transactional to transformational practices.
The first event in this series will convene B3s, Black evaluation practitioners, leaders from Black communities, funders, partners, and allies for deeper learning and reflection on evaluation that centers the values and perspectives of Black communities. This session will feature three Black speakers:
- Betty Onyura, Director of Knowledge Mobilization at the Canadian Association of Mental Health;
- Ayesha Boyce, Associate Professor in the Division of Educational Leadership and Innovation at Arizona State University; and
- Liben Gebremikael, Executive Director of TAIBU Community Health Centre
The speakers will explore Critical Tensions in Evaluation Work, Culturally Responsive Evaluation, and Embedding Afrocentric Perspectives in Evaluative Thinking and Practice.
