We help clients think through both process and outcome evaluations, and incorporate the use of both qualitative and quantitative data, proactively applying social justice principles in our data collection and reporting. We engage in our work proactively and purposefully, to facilitate learning and to help partners promote equity in their design, implementation, and monitoring.
We value: Quality and excellence, innovation, creativity and vision, inclusiveness, equity and diversity, and collaboration with others. Creating a community of care is a foundational to the work we do, together!
