The Application for LEEAD Scholars is Now Open!
The application for the Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) Program, an Expanding the Bench™ initiative led by Change Matrix is now available.
We are seeking mid-career researchers from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups who aspire to become leaders in the field of evaluation. Applicants should have a doctoral degree with 3 to 5 years of experience in research or evaluation in the fields of social sciences or related fields, with at least three years of that experience occurring post-doctorate. For more information about the qualifications and expectations, access the LEEAD Scholar Overview document.
Please share this announcement with anyone you feel would be a strong candidate. We have provided some promotional language you can use for social media posts in the document attached.
We will be hosting an informational webinar on April 15 at 1:00 pm EDT, where participants will have the opportunity to ask a LEEAD alum and Sandra Silva, LEEAD Project Director questions. In the meantime, if you have questions please email us at [email protected]
We sincerely appreciate any and all assistance in making sure this amazing opportunity spans any unfortunate gaps in informational networks and reaches all eligible scholars of color!
Thank you in advance,
The Expanding the Bench Team
