Natalie Cook accepted into the Advancing Culturally-responsive and Equitable Evaluation Network

Dr. Natalie Cook was accepted into the Advancing Culturally-responsive and Equitable (ACE) Evaluation Network. The ACE Evaluation Network is a community of racially and ethnically diverse evaluators who have experience in and a strong commitment to the practice of culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE).

Successful applicants to the Network’s bi-annual call for qualifications must demonstrate their evaluation knowledge and experience, and provide sufficient detail around their CREE practice. To become a member evaluator in the ACE Evaluation Network, applicants must meet certain criteria, including significant years of evaluation experience in a key/lead role (e.g., Principal Investigator, Project Director, Project Lead) and the ability to produce high-quality written products and other reports, including the ability to communicate evaluation processes and findings to multiple audiences. 

As an ACE Network Member, Dr. Cook will have opportunities to pursue new evaluation partnerships; get to know fellow Network Members and other stakeholders; and engage in meaningful conversations and learning opportunities - particularly around CREE - in support of her personal growth and development as an evaluator. Those seeking to partner with evaluators from diverse backgrounds who practice CREE in efforts to advance health justice can join the network for free here
