Inclusion refers to meaningful involvement of all stakeholders in the evaluation process. It is meant to include the stakeholders who have traditionally been recognized, such as funders, administrators, staff, and participants, as well as seeking out accurate and credible representation for members of groups who have been traditionally excluded from or misrepresented in the evaluation process. Inclusion carries with it an implicit directive to be consciously aware of the bases for exclusion or misrepresentation, such as gender, race or ethnicity, disability, sexual orientation, religious preference, economic status, language, or other characteristics commonly associated with discrimination or oppression.
