Type of Evaluation
WEPOWER envisions a future where systems are accountable to historically oppressed communities and focuses on promoting wealth, education, health, and justice for Black and Latinx households in historically high poverty communities. It aims to increase wealth, access to quality education, and increase organized people power. Its goals include creating living wage jobs, increasing the revenue generated by community-owned businesses, and increasing the survival rate of Black and Latinx-owned businesses.
The Evaluation Center is partnering with WEPOWER to refine its data collection practices and better understand the impact of its programming.
The Evaluation Center, in collaboration with WEPOWER, is updating and administering surveys to evaluate power building and participant satisfaction for WEPOWER’s Power Building Academies and Chisholm’s Chair Fellowship. The Evaluation Center is also developing a series of surveys to evaluate participants’ engagement and understanding of WEPOWER’s mission following their attendance at an ongoing series of coalition meetings or community building events hosted by WEPOWER. The Evaluation Center is responsible for survey distribution, data collection, data management, and creation of dissemination products to be shared back with program participants and staff.
