Community Science Honors Our Hero and Colleague Ricardo A. Millett

Ricardo was a powerful force who set in motion the transformation of the evaluation profession. As the W.K. Kellogg Foundation’s first Evaluation Director in the first among major philanthropies to create this function, he used his position and the foundation’s resources to “steer” the American Evaluation Association to launch the Building Diversity Initiative in 1999. This initiative explored how to address the lack of diversity in the profession. This initiative resulted in a plan and set of recommendations to not only diversify the profession and the American Evaluation Association, but also to push the practice of evaluation to become more culturally competent. Today, AEA has graduated 19 cohorts of emerging evaluators with demographic backgrounds that have traditionally been underrepresented in the profession (i.e., the Graduate Education Diversity Initiative [GEDI]); more attention than ever to issues of cultural competency, inclusion, and equity; and a consistently diverse board. Ricardo posed the question about the profession’s lack of diversity and attention to cultural competence in 1999 and when he saw the need to act, he made it happen.
