The Center for Culturally Responsive Evaluation and Assessment (CREA) will have its Sixth International Conference in September and October of this year in Chicago, Illinois from 30 September to 2 October 2020, with pre-conference workshops on 29 September.
The CREA 2020 theme of Interrogating Cultural Responsiveness against the Backdrop of Racism and Colonialism will focus on the following areas in program evaluation, measurement, and assessment:
- Being culturally responsive in the midst of discomfort and opposition—critically reflecting on our professional experiences and strategies for maintaining and strengthening our cultural responsiveness
- Choosing to be part of a solution rather than part of a problem—how well do we encourage interpersonal and academic discussions of racism and colonialism
- Building the capacity of those we work with—communities, organizations, funders—to understand history, culture and the distribution of power resulting from racism and colonialism
- Naming, unpacking, and destabilizing white privilege to understand how racism and colonialism negatively impact all peoples
- Delving deeper into the intersections of racism and colonialism with sexism, transphobia and other prejudices that marginalize and exclude
- Examining the theoretical roots of cultural responsiveness through the intersecting lenses of racism and colonialism.
