EEI engages an ecosystem of organizations and people—foundations and philanthropic service organizations —who are centering equity in their work and understand that this has implications for evaluative practice. Its infrastructure is designed to develop and disseminate EE Principles to be put into practice, promote shared inquiry and learning, catalyze cross-sector thought leadership, and contribute to field-building across the ecosystem.
