e-Anthology of Developmental Evaluation for Social Justice

Introducing the e-anthology.png

Welcome to the inaugural Developmental Evaluation Institute (DEI) e-anthology!

Developmental evaluation is continuing to emerge as a force for social change, as evaluators work alongside and within communities around the globe, supporting their aspirations for change, in ways that authentically reflect diverse communities’ values, principles and expression. In pursuit of social justice, this inaugural e-anthology, provides a space for different peoples and perspectives, to give voice to the potentiality of developmental evaluation; its practice, its promise and its contribution to a socially just and equitable world.

We invite you to download, read, reflect, and share. Engage with us and the authors on social media, letting us know what was clarified, what was confusing, what was helpful, inspiring, or perplexing. And please, join our mailing list and consider contributing to future editions of the DEI’s e-anthology about developmental evaluation for social justice.
