We lead evaluation projects, consult with foundations on strategy and learning, and support field building through convening and research.

Philanthropy increasingly is imagining—and re-imagining—its work and what it means to be committed to racial equity and justice. What does this call for societal transformation require of those working on strategy, learning, and evaluation in philanthropy? What can we bring forward from what we know? What must we unlearn?

CEI partners with philanthropy on strategy, learning, and evaluation efforts that are intended to advance racial equity and justice.

We are evaluators, coaches, advisors, organizers, conveners, and researchers.

We move in agreement with the Equitable Evaluation Framework ™ (EEF) and have been collaborating with the Equitable Evaluation Initiative (EEI) since co-authoring its initial framing paper in 2017.
