Assessment practices within the not-for-profit sector have increasingly taken account of Indigenous peoples’ needs and goals. Yet, more work is needed to bring Indigenous approaches into assessing First Nation-ENGO partnerships. This webinar will provide ENGO leaders, staff, and volunteers with a look at a kinship-based approach to partnership assessment. We will respond to questions such as What does assessment look like through a relationship lens? and How might project partners ensure that assessment is accessible to all within Indigenous communities? Our goal will be to increase non-Indigenous organizations’ awareness about how partnership assessment might look from an Indigenous perspective. A draft version of an assessment tool will be presented.
