    The Discussion Group will focus on two broad questions:

    (1) How do I start using equitable evaluation practices?

    (2) What do successful equitable evaluation practices look like?

    For the December 7th discussion, we will use the following as our guides and discuss how we might incorporate Trust-Based Philanthropy into our work and grant applications:

    A Trust-Based Framework for Learning & Evaluation in Philanthropy

    ENRI Week: A Trust-Based Philanthropy Journey by Adama Brown

    The Discussion Group was inspired by the small-group informal conversations that originally led to the creation of GBEN. We hope that these new conversations will provide GBEN members another setting to problem-solving on issues related to equitable evaluation while also getting to know each other better. Each session will discuss a short article or blog post related to equitable evaluation and problems of practice shared by meeting participants. The discussion groups will be conducted on Zoom.  These discussions are hosted every 4 to 6 weeks.

    If you are interested in attending this session, please register. A Zoom link will be sent in your registration confirmation.
