This panel will explore key ideas about how evaluation can improve and be more useful in meeting the needs of Indigenous people now and into the future. We will examine what evaluation and evidence means in an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander context and how culture and knowledge systems can inform concepts of evaluation. The panel will also discuss real-world suggestions for how commissioners of evaluations and evaluators can support communities and those who work with them to own their evaluations, by fostering a culture of empowerment, strengths based, collaborative design.
