Equitable Evaluation Framing Paper

We are excited to share our Framing Paper to set the stage for further conversation around equity in philanthropy and evaluation. It reflects briefly on the current “state of practice” of equity in both philanthropy and evaluation, and poses questions to consider. The content is based on a combination of a year-long research process that included a thorough review of philanthropic and evaluation literature, environmental scanning of equity work in philanthropy, and interviews with foundations and evaluators, as well as our own experiences in the field and conversations with other practitioners.
