Author Andrea Steigerwald has been involved with OPEN for over two years as an active participant, an events committee member, and now as the Special Projects Liaison on the 2021 OPEN council. Her special projects role is focused on advancing DEIJ efforts and holding space for more leadership to emerge in this area. Andrea hopes to engage in conversations with the OPEN members and other affiliates about their DEIJ work and anti-racist commitments, to organize listening sessions to hear more from the OPEN community, and to center equity in OPEN's strategic planning. She has a lot to learn and would love to hear from you!
Add to our OPEN List of DEI Resources!
Exciting update: We have compiled an OPEN List of DEI Resources to share with you!
This list is meant to provide resources related generally to advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion, in addition to tools for culturally responsive and equitable evaluation and research with culturally specific groups.
We hope to a) offer our community these resources so that we can foster our own learning and each "do the work" to understand and advance DEI in our evaluation practice and b) elevate the scholars and practitioners who have often been left out of conversations about our roots and the "tree of evaluation".
We honor the authors and creators of these works and are grateful to them for sharing their expertise, experience, questions, and deep knowledge with us!
We acknowledge this list is incomplete, and there is room to grow!
We invite you to submit any additional resources to this list by filling out this quick form on the OPEN Resources page. Please note: If the resource you are sharing is not your own work and is not published or been made available to the public, please make sure that you have the author's permission to share before submitting. Thank you!
If you have any questions about this list, please contact Andrea.
