Doing Evaluation in Service of Racial Equity is a three-part series of practice guides that show how to incorporate racial equity as a core value into evaluation.
Evaluators help measure the effectiveness of change efforts that impact the lives of children and their families every day. Local leaders, funders, nonprofits, academic institutions and other change agents use evaluation to demonstrate successes, test new models and refine strategies to create more equitable communities.
How do we know that the formula for change works? Where do evaluators begin when they want to conduct evaluation to advance racial equity? To help answer those questions and in response to the past few years’ global outcry for racial justice, we commissioned three racial equity practice guides with tools to help evaluators debunk myths, diagnose biases and systems and deepen community engagement in their evaluation endeavors:
- Debunk Myths
- Diagnose Biases and Systems
- Deepen Community Engagement

The creation of these guides was led by Dr. Kien S. Lee, principal associate and vice president for Community Science, an internationally recognized evaluation consulting firm, and commissioned by the Kellogg Foundation. A diverse cadre of distinguished evaluators and social justice advocates were engaged, who provided insightful reviews and feedback on the guides.
