Indigenous Evaluation Frameworks Online – 4 day course

The ability to design, direct, and benefit from evaluation practice is an inherent right. Indigenous People have been evaluating since time in memorial. Today, evaluation as a tool can support Indigenous practices and inform the design of programs and projects. Evaluation is a mechanism for amplifying the collective of Indigenous voices.

Following Right Relations and the Wise Practices leadership and governance model, this program explores how accountable leaders act as stewards of a vision, uniting good governance and ethical practices while honoring their identity and culture. Indigenous Evaluation Frameworks will provide leaders a foundational space for thinking outside of the status quo and skills and tools to implement and assess community driven change that reflects community values and cultural practices.

Please note, this introductory program does not count as credit towards the Certificate of Indigenous Leadership, Governance, and Management Excellence.

Through information sharing, lectures, and evaluation exercises, participants will learn to create an evaluation framework that reflects their community or organization, in a creative space. They will also learn to bring reflective leadership practice to their work and well-being.
