How Will We Know It When We See It? A Critical Friend Perspective of the Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) Program and Its Legacy in Evaluation

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


As a critical friend of the Graduate Education Diversity Internship (GEDI) program, I provide three personal reference points to organize observations and reflections during my role as mentor and instructor for the program. As a scholar concerned with promoting Culturally Responsive Evaluation (CRE), I reflect on the founding and development of the program alongside some of the key ideas that shaped CRE with the hopeful assumptions that the GEDI alumni will carry the CRE torch that lights the path for those who will follow in this common struggle.
