The RISE Partnership Announces 2020 Readiness Cohort

Sep 3, 2020

The RISE Partnership is excited to announce that 24 organizations have been selected to participate in the second year of the “Readiness” component, which will offer training and consultation for internal program planning and evaluation. 

Recognizing the role that racism has played in the evaluation field, the RISE Partnership has committed to bringing a diversity, equity, and inclusion lens to their work. This year, the Readiness Cohort represents more diversity in leadership, with roughly 40 percent of the organizations being led by people of color. Every organization has an expressed commitment to racial equity and many are actively working to diversify their staff and board. 

The 2020 RISE Readiness Cohort includes:

The Readiness component provides introductory knowledge and skill building for organizations in key concepts, tools, and resources for internal evaluation capacity building and performance management. Each participating organization will participate in group training and up to two hours of individual consultation over six months. Individual consultation may include tailored resources to organizations ready to continue learning and skill development outside of RISE.
