Culturally responsive approaches position culture at the center of evaluation, ideally leading to studies that are responsive to a program's context, values, and beliefs. Doing so can enhance the credibility and usefulness of findings to those who the program seeks to serve.

Drawing on interviews with evaluators and program staff from the Office of Indian Health Services, Emi will share what she has learned about integrating culturally responsive approaches into your own evaluation practice.
