Evaluation Association of St. Louis Empowerment Evaluation Webinar
Empowerment evaluation is a stakeholder involvement approach to evaluation. It is aimed at learning and improving. It helps people learn how to help themselves and become more self-determined, by learning how to monitor and evaluate their own programs and initiatives. Key concepts include a critical friend (evaluator helping to guide their evaluation), cycles of reflection and action, and a community of learners. Principles guiding empowerment evaluation range from improvement to capacity building and accountability. Contact Matt and Megan for additional details.
