Redistributing power to change policies, programs, and practices.
ENGAGING DIVERSE PERSPECTIVES AND EXPERIENCES TO CREATE A MORE EQUITABLE EVALUATION ECOSYSTEM.
Who We Are
Expanding the Bench® (ETB) is an initiative committed to diversifying evaluation and elevating culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE).
Who We Support
Those who are invested in progressing an equitable evaluation ecosystem that prioritizes justice.
Our Mission & Vision
We support the practice of CREE by Evaluators, Funders of Evaluation, and partnered community members. Because of ongoing injustice, we specifically uplift Evaluators who are racially and ethnically diverse. We envision a reality where power is distributed to lead change toward justice.
Your financial support is vital to creating a sustainable future for the ETB initiative. The Pricing Model’s flexible setup allows for Funders of Evaluation to purchase services in bulk or choose from existing à la carte offerings. Take a look for yourself.
The perspectives and voices of people who experience oppression and marginalization have often been excluded in evaluation. ETB is strengthening, diversifying, and increasing access to racially and ethnically diverse Evaluators.
CREE Learning Series
ETB works to support diverse evaluators and Funders of Evaluation to ensure that power is distributed equitably to lead change toward justice. In doing so we reach many audiences, and it’s vital that we create a shared understanding around CREE. That’s why, with help from content experts, we have developed the CREE Learning Series.
Participation, including access to pre-recorded videos and live discussions, is free for Advancing Culturally-responsive and Equitable (ACE) Evaluation Network Members, community members of the Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) Program (Scholars/Alumni and Cohort 3 Mentors), and direct Funders of ETB.
