    CES recognition of responsibility for improving Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

    CES recognizes that evaluators have a role to play in addressing systemic issues that affect people’s lives.  Evaluators are in a position to influence the decisions of governments, non-governmental organizations and other key service providers whose actions affect our daily realities.  CES considers it part of our mandate to support evaluators in dismantling systemic and structural oppression, and is actively working towards modelling inclusion, encouraging diverse perspectives and learning new ways to acknowledge and address the struggles of historically oppressed communities.
