Raising the Bar: Cultural Competence and Equity - Equitable Evaluation and The Foundation Review Race and Equity Issue

In 2013, jdcPartnerships (now Luminare Group) began talking about the relationship between equity and evaluation in philanthropic practice with Tom Kelly (then Evaluation Director at Annie E. Casey Foundation). This initial research led to a broader interest and set of recommendations related to equity and evaluation in philanthropy purposes found in Raising the Bar – Integrating Cultural Competence and Equity: Equitable Evaluation.


In 2014, The Foundation Review Race and Equity special issue co-edited by the Association of Black Foundation Executives is published. This was followed by a series of webinars.
