Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) establishes partnerships with evaluation firms, foundations, think tanks, universities, and non-profit agencies that are committed to advancing racial and ethnic inclusion in their workforce. By serving as a Practicum Site, you provide Scholars an opportunity to apply culturally responsive and equitable evaluation (CREE) knowledge in a real-world setting.
The Practicum Site experience is virtual and involves having Scholars complete one or more discrete components of an evaluation project (e.g., collaborating to design evaluation, logic model/theory of change development, measure development, data collection and analysis, and report writing). The Practicum experience is often executed remotely over a 6-8 month timeline. The Practicum provides Scholars with contract evaluation experience and serves as a culminating assessment of evaluation competencies, as Scholars apply what they have learned from the other components of the LEEAD Program.
For additional detail about serving as a Practicum Site, you can download the Practicum Site Overview (pdf).
