Consistent with the Canadian Evaluation Society’s values, the CESBC “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 modeling inclusion, encouraging diverse perspectives and learning new ways to acknowledge and address the struggles of historically oppressed communities.”
CESBC seeks to promote Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI). As such, we seek to increase accessibility at our 2022 conference for under-represented and traditionally oppressed groups, along with those who are students or seeking to enter the evaluation field. We welcome applications for funding support from individuals in need of assistance to attend the conference. Special consideration will be given to applicants who are from any underrepresented group and those who are in any way disenfranchised, such as economically, racially, religiously, socially, geographically, or politically (e.g., refugees and asylum seekers).
We have established a bursary program to subsidize:
● conference registration early bird fees (students $100, CES members $175; general: $190)
● transportation costs for those traveling outside of Greater Vancouver area (between $200 to $500, depending on the location and the financial need)
● per-diem expenses such as hotels (maximum $200)
Based on your financial needs, and your location of residence you might be able to access financial support for one or more areas of subsidy identified above to a maximum of $500. Please note that BC CES has limited bursary funds and will try to assist as many applicants as possible.
