Introduction to Expanding the Bench for Culturally-Responsive and Equitable Evaluation

February 25, 2020,

Does your organization value diversity, inclusion and equity? How are those values reflected in your organization's approach to learning and evaluation? 

Expanding the Bench (ETB) is based on the belief that learning and evaluation have the power to shape policy, programs, and practice and that evaluators from diverse communities increase the likelihood that methods, analyses and interpretation benefit the communities they serve.
