The Funder and Evaluator Affinity Network (FEAN) is a collective effort to deepen the impact of evaluation on philanthropic practice by transforming how funders and evaluators collaborate. In the fall of 2019, five Action Teams of volunteers from FEAN membership assembled around practice areas chosen collaboratively as areas in the field most urgently in need of change: Strategy & Practice, Evaluators of Color, Knowledge Sharing, Global Challenges, and Collaboration & Partnership. Over the course of 2019 and 2020, the five teams developed a suite of products — briefs, open letters, and more — as a “Call to Action.”
In a two-webinar series, the authors of the Call to Action products will present the five issues and propose actionable strategies for addressing them, then facilitate lively discussions of next steps, implementation ideas, and challenges in small breakout groups.
This session, co-presented by Expanding the Bench co-director Rachele Espiritu, PhD, will focus on actionable strategies to make evaluations more useful to philanthropy and to help evaluators of color thrive.
