As philanthropy evolves and moves to centering equity, assessment, research, learning, and evaluation strategies must also evolve. What is the Equitable Evaluation Framework (EEF) and how do we engage with the EEF? Join your colleagues to learn more about how the Equitable Evaluation Initiative is seeding and growing a field of EEF practitioners to shift the paradigm.
Marcia Coné, Director of Practice Engagement and Evolution at the EEF, leads the Equipping for Transformation cadré of support to Practice Partners. Her focus is on building a field of evaluation, learning, and research practitioners who advance the Equitable Evaluation Framework by expanding definitions of rigor, validity, and embracing 21st century complexity.
In the summer of 2020 Marcia launched the Equipping for Transformation Practice Partner Platform, a robust ecosystem of organizations and individuals in multiple spaces and modalities design to help partners interrogate and evolve their evaluation practices, promote shared inquiry and learning, reflect and innovate, catalyze cross-sector thought leadership, and contribute to field-building.
For nearly three decades, Marcia has worked in partnership with NGOs, Philanthropy, PSOs, and Grassroots and Grasstops leaders to shift the paradigm and create cultures where intersectional equity is at the center. She brings a depth and breadth of experience that fuels her passion for moving the philanthropic sector away from a traditional framework towards bold philanthropy that is a catalyst for change.
Following the keynote address, the Seattle Evaluation Association will review the last year at the association and discuss plans for the year to come.
