CREE Learning SEries
Culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE) is not just one method of evaluation, it is an approach that should be infused into all evaluation methodologies. CREE advances equity by informing strategy, program improvement, decision-making, policy formation, and change.
– Expanding the Bench, 2019
why, what, how
Expanding the Bench® (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. This three-part video teaching tool is broken down into four short videos, per part, that showcase learnings and offer new ideas and fresh perspectives on approaching CREE-focused work. Participants are invited to join live virtual discussions—that will be recorded—to further broaden their knowledge around each part of the Series.
Participation in the CREE Learning Series, 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. There is a $200 fee per person, for all other participants.

This self-paced three-part learning series provides a hybrid approach to learners through a series of short informational videos, followed by live discussions with a diverse audience of evaluators, Funders of Evaluation, Evaluation Partners and others interested and invested in CREE.
