These practical guides, tools and templates have been developed in support of a Lowitja Institute approach to the culturally safe evaluation of programs and policies that affect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. The tools can be used to eliminate racism in evaluation, and encourage self-reflection to ensure that evaluation practitioners continue their learning journey with each evaluation completed.
The tools are for evaluators and commissioners who want to change their practices and ensure they are working in a more culturally safe manner.
Lowitja Institute hopes that the tools will assist in achieving the following four goals, which are shared by many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples:
There are four tools, each with a separate guidebook explaining what is in the tool, when it is most relevant to use the tool across the four main evaluation stages, and how to use it.
Tool A. Addressing cultural safety throughout evaluation
Tool B. Addressing racism within evaluation
Tool C. Community-led co-design of evaluation
Tool D. Critical reflection on evaluation
Each tool contains several components, including the guidebook, posters, checklists, audit and reflection templates.
The tools encourage self-reflection to ensure that evaluation practitioners continue their learning journey with each evaluation completed.
There is more information about each tool, including the price, below.
