As part of the foundation's Race Equity and Inclusion efforts, the REAL unit at AECF has launched an initiative we are calling Expanding the Bench.  This initiative aims to improve the diversity within our current pool of evaluators. Expanding the Bench rests upon a fundamental belief that increasing diversity in the field of research and evaluation improves our knowledge base and makes for better science and social innovation.

To this end, we are soliciting qualifications of evaluators from historically underrepresented groups with evaluation expertise in AECF's priority program areas including child welfare, juvenile justice, economic opportunity, placed-based strategies, early childhood development and education.  Qualified candidates are encouraged to apply to be among those entered into a database for REAL to consult during the distribution and selection process for evaluation opportunities and other evaluations-related efforts. In a future phase of Expanding the Bench, the database will be made available online for other funders to access when seeking evaluation services.


Interested persons should complete an online application form at AECFExpandingTheBench.theresumator.com/apply. Completed applications are due no later than 11:59pm EST on Sunday, February 15, 2015. Please see the Full CFQ for a more detailed description of the application process, eligibility requirements and selection criteria.  For more information about the CFQ please contact Dr. Kantahyanee Murray at kmurray@aecf.org.
