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.

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.
