ETB Equity Consultations (EEC)
The EEC is a perfect way to support your integration of culturally responsive and equitable evaluation from experienced CREE Evaluators.
Curious how it works? There are two pathways:
Anyone who requests EEC à la carte secures up to three hours of consultation with two Evaluators from a team of CREE Consultants.
All Annual Subscribers to ETB will be offered matches with two Evaluators from a team of CREE Consultants for up to three hours— no request needed.
Timing for the consultation must be completed within the subscription period.
More About the EEC
Here are a few possible topics for consultation:
- Framing an evaluation project description with a culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE) lens.
- Engaging as thought partners on a specific aspect of equitable evaluation.
- Developing an equity-focused request for proposal or scope of work.
- Examining one’s relationship with grantees and navigating them more effectively.
Expectations of Requests
This is a finite opportunity for three hours of consultation. For Funders, define your request clearly:
- What is the question you want to ask about your CREE practice?
- Know and communicate your timeline and by when this consultation needs to be completed.
- The accompanying materials including the request form should take no longer than 30 minutes to read.
- You may include a maximum of three people on your team to work with the Consultants.
Guidelines and Recommendations for Consultations
Please note that the consultation time is capped at three hours, including time to review relevant materials and any other preparatory time. The consultations are to be determined by the Funders and consultation team. Funders and Consultants will work together to coordinate their availability, duration, and occurrences of calls based on the request.
Consultants have three hours of commitment for each request and the recommended breakdown is as follows:
- Plan no longer than 30 minutes for Consultants to review requests, relevant materials, and preparation.
- Plan about 30 minutes for peer engagement.
- Plan for up to two, one-hour consulting sessions.
After the EEC consultation is complete, if Evaluators or Funders would like to continue their work, they are free to do so independently of EEC.
Meet the Consultants
Eight Evaluators from the Advancing Culturally-Responsive and Equitable (ACE) Evaluation Network serve as the Consultants. The ACE Evaluation Network comprises of racially and ethnically diverse Evaluators who have been historically and/or are presently underrepresented or marginalized in the U.S. who are committed to using CREE and spreading its practice. Learn more about the Consultants and why they are committed to advancing CREE.
How does EEC work for à la carte Subscribers?
To begin the process, complete the consultation request form to articulate the purpose of the consultation, specific questions they have for the consultants, and any other context, information, or expectations. We anticipate at least 10 business days between submissions of requests and identifying the consultation team.
How does EEC work for Annual Subscribers?
ETB Team will create assignments between Funders and Consultants upon subscriptions.
