American Journal of Evaluation: Empowerment Evaluation Article
In case you missed it, check out the first article in the latest edition of the American Journal of Evaluation (Vol. 40, Number 3, September 2019). It is another excellent empowerment evaluation. It is titled Empowerment Evaluation: A Case Study of Citywide Implementation Within an HIV Prevention Context. It highlights the 3 and 10 step approach, principles, and results. The article also demonstrates the value of using the most appropriate stakeholder involvement approach for the task at hand. We also applaud them for building evaluation capacity and applying the approach to a socially significant, civil rights domain.
Congrats Gregory, Peter, Christian, Emily, Christopher, Patrick, David, Amy, Hendricks, and George.
