Equipping for transformation


Speaking directly and authentically and listening deeply have the capacity to transform and bring about change. Equitable Evaluation Initiative (EEI) conversations create a unique environment designed to guide how we show up, think about, and practice evaluation through collective inquiry on advancing the EEF™.

Our Equipping for Transformation (EFT) community of practice is made up of individuals (representing philanthropic organizations), who are active practitioners of the EEF™ and share what they are learning with and alongside others. When we are in community and relationship with each other, we learn how to be and do better.

The focus in the practice of the EEF™ is on the process, individuals, organizations and systems - not only the product. What we pay attention to and what we practice is what we value. Practice makes us vulnerable and pushes us to the edge of our current skill set and beyond. The point is to get beyond the limitations of the current evaluative paradigm. It is in the exploration of tensions, sticking points, mindsets, and intentions where the greatest form of learning takes place.

Changing and challenging norms to bring us closer to the truths we need to understand and move closer to our missions is not for the faint of heart.


We appreciate the leadership and championing of this work by those who have joined us in this endeavor — but even more than that, we are grateful for their humanity.
