EVALCORP’s Culturally Responsive Approach

Furthermore, the pillars of our Culturally Responsive Approach work together to enable us to deliver culturally responsive and equitable services to diverse groups with sensitivity to their unique lived experiences and needs. It underscores the importance of:

  • Drawing from the wisdom of partners, experts, and employees who are members of the community
  • Continuous learning, curiosity, self-awareness, and humility
  • Building trust and genuine connection
  • Recognizing and balancing power imbalances across stakeholder groups

Cultural Humility: We intentionally reflect on our own beliefs, assumptions, and identities and seek to learn from others. Our intention is to connect with others by honoring their beliefs and customs, acknowledging differences, and accepting them for who they are. Key attributes: Openness; Self Reflection/Awareness; Lifelong learning; Institutional accountability; Empathy and compassion; To be “other oriented”; Acknowledging power imbalances and deliberately balancing power structures.

Cultural Competence: We systematically expand our collective and individual ability to interact effectively and respectfully with people of various backgrounds—cultural, racial, ethnic, socioeconomic, and life conditions. This includes drawing from the wisdom of team members, partners, and experts who are members of the impacted communities, and adhering to American Evaluation Association’s (AEA) “Guiding Principles for Evaluators” and National Culturally and Linguistically Appropriate Services (CLAS).

Trauma-Informed: We recognize the widespread impact of trauma on individuals and communities, particularly those who have experienced systemic oppression, discrimination, and/or violence. The environments we create prioritizes physical and psychological safety, avoiding re-traumatization, and cultivates trust. Our approach recognizes that we may not know if someone may has faced trauma, including historical, intergenerational, or interpersonal trauma.

Representation: We intentionally and meaningfully include individuals from diverse backgrounds and community stakeholders and members throughout our process. Organizationally, this includes building a diverse workforce and leadership team combined with distributed leadership and decision-making. Beyond inclusion, the perspectives and wisdom of individuals from underrepresented and impacted groups are valued and weaved into strategy and decisions.

Founder’s Intent:

Creating safe, healthy, and strong communities through partnership and informed strategy.

“That which is measured improves. That which is measured and reported improves exponentially.”
