2) Applications for the Second Cohort of Leaders in Equitable Evaluation and Diversity (LEEAD) Scholars will open in the Spring of 2017
The LEEAD Program develops a pipeline of diverse underrepresented minority leaders in equitable evaluation who will advance the field of evaluation. This nine-month evaluation pipeline training program consists of three essential components: (1) enrollment in credit-bearing course modules; (2) meaningful mentorships from senior experts; and (3) a practicum placement at a research organization, think tank, foundation or private firm. We are seeking talented, mid-career scholars from underrepresented racial and ethnic minority groups. For full eligibility requirements and more information, please see flier attached. If you would like to sign up to receive email updates regarding the application timeline and next steps, please email firstname.lastname@example.org to be included in our monthly listserv.
3) The Advancing Collaborative Evaluation (ACE) Network will launch a Call for Qualifications in the Spring of 2017
The ACE Network is comprised of highly experienced underrepresented minority evaluation experts that represent a wide range of methodological backgrounds and possess substantive skills, either as independent evaluators or leaders of small evaluation firms. To be selected for the ACE Network, evaluators go through a rigorous vetting process involving submissions of credentials, work samples and publications and a detailed questionnaire, which requests information about experience and achievements as well as methodological and substantive competencies in evaluation. Selected candidates are then entered into a database, which is consulted during the search process for evaluation contracts. Please see attached for more details. If interested, email email@example.com to sign-up to our monthly listserv, and receive application and timeline updates on the Call for Qualifications.
RSF Call for papers: Criminal Justice Contact and Inequality, edited by Kristin Turney, University of California, Irvine, and Sara Wakefield, Rutgers University
In this issue of RSF: The Russell Sage Foundation Journal of the Social Sciences, we will bring together creative and rigorous empirical papers from multiple disciplines and methodologies to reflect on the consequences of criminal justice contact for individuals, families, and communities. We hope all papers will reflect on how criminal justice contact creates, maintains, and exacerbates existing social inequality in the United States. We expect that most papers will speak to one of the three research areas—stages of criminal justice contact, spillover consequences of criminal justice contact, and incentives and disincentives for policy change. Papers that propose new methods for studying inequality resulting from the criminal justice system are also encouraged. Prospective contributors should submit a CV and an abstract (up to two pages in length, single or double spaced) of their study along with up to two pages of supporting material (e.g., tables, figures, pictures, etc.) no later than 5 PM EST on January 15, 2017 to: https://rsfjournal.onlineapplicationportal.com. All submissions must be original work that has not been previously published in part or in full. Only abstracts submitted to https://rsfjournal.onlineapplicationportal.com will be considered. Each paper will receive a $1,000 honorarium when the issue is published.
