Encouraging interest from those invested in progressing an equitable evaluation ecosystem.
Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) is an evaluation training program designed to develop a pathway for diverse leaders in culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE) who will advance the field of Evaluation. Since it began in the fall of 2015, 62 Scholars have completed the LEEAD Program.
The Three Components of LEEAD
LEEAD is an evaluation training program designed to develop a pathway for diverse leaders in CREE who will advance the field of evaluation. Since the Program began in the fall of 2015, 62 Scholars have completed the LEEAD Program with support from dozens of Mentors and Practicum Sites.
LEEAD Scholars are matched with LEEAD Mentors at the beginning of the Program who, as evaluation experts, will reinforce content learned through the online curriculum, bolster networking skills and connections, and advise Scholars in professional matters.
The Practicum Site experience is virtual and involves having Scholars complete one or more discrete components of an evaluation project. The Practicum provides Scholars with contract evaluation experience and an opportunity to apply learnings gained through the curriculum, as well as serve as a CREE thought partner and collaborator around a specific evaluation project.
