Introduction to Expanding the Bench for Culturally-Responsive and Equitable Evaluation

Publication date: 
February, 2020

Learn how Expanding the Bench is increasing diversity, inclusion, and equity in evaluation, and how this initiative can support your organization's pursuit of equity.

Expanding the Bench (ETB) is based on the belief that learning and evaluation have the power to shape policy, programs, and practice and that evaluators from diverse communities increase the likelihood that methods, analyses, and interpretation benefit the communities they serve. 

Learn about:

  • A new pathway for diverse evaluators to gain knowledge and experience in culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE), the Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) Program;
  • An exclusive searchable online database for evaluation funders and partners to connect with a diverse group of seasoned evaluators - the Advancing Culturally-responsive and Equitable (ACE) Evaluation Network; and
  • Our field-building movement to advance the practice of culturally responsive and equitable evaluation and that includes partnerships and ETB funding opportunities.

Presenters: Elizabeth Waetzig and Rachele Espiritu, Co-Directors of ETB and Founding Partners of Change Matrix.

This webinar was organized by Associations Advancing Equitable Evaluation Practices, including Connecticut Council for Philanthropy.
