The Minnesota Evaluation Association (MNEA) envisions a collaborative community where evaluators help build a more just and equitable society to ensure the liberation of all.
MNEA provides a multidisciplinary platform for evaluators to strengthen knowledge, skills, and connections in service of advancing equity through evaluation in Minnesota and beyond.
MNEA acknowledges that systems of oppression have historically excluded, and continue to exclude, non-dominant, non-linear identities and knowledge systems - including LGBTQ2S+, persons with visible and invisible disabilities, immigrants and refugees, Indigenous, Black/African American, and other communities of color.
Dismantling the resulting inequities requires a commitment to working internally and externally to unlearn oppressive systems including white supremacy, imperialism, misogyny, colonialism, and much more.
We aim to highlight alternative ways of knowing and being, and to move the field and practice of evaluation away from its oppressive roots and toward liberation.
