Funders and philanthropic institutions increasingly embrace equity as core to their work. Yet even among those organizations, evaluation is difficult to examine, revamp and cultivate through an equity lens. Join us for the latest installment of our Power Forward webinar series, Power for Just Practice: How Evaluations Can Promote Equity, 2 p.m. ET Jun 12.

This webinar will examine how funders are deploying new thinking and assets that articulate the value proposition and service paradigm of equity. While not all evaluation approaches are likely to support the shift of power imbalances and reduce inequities, the panel will focus on the principles of Equitable Evaluation and funder practices that support better data, organizational alignments and programs. Discussion will focus on tools and case studies currently being deployed that enhance thoughtful application of philanthropic equity commitments.
