Exemplary Evaluations in A Multicultural World: Learning from Evaluation’s Successes Across the Globe
The Exemplary Evaluations theme is intended to inspire and energize evaluation professionals from around the world to spotlight what has gone well in evaluation. As we listen to each other’s exceptional experiences, we listen for themes of success—how were these evaluation exemplars managed? How did evaluators engage with stakeholders? How were evaluation conclusions developed, what lent them credibility, and what led to evaluation use? There is much to learn from examples of high quality, ethically defensible, culturally responsive evaluation practices that have clearly contributed to decision-making processes, program improvement, policy formulation, effective and humane organizations, and ideally to the enhancement of the public good.
