We believe in

ADAPTABILITY.

ADAPTABILITY

The world isn’t static.

Neither is any project.

We thrive in real-world settings where adaptability and change is expected.

INTEGRITY

Methodological integrity is important to us.

We employ quantitative and qualitative methods that organizations can believe in and use.

ADVANCEMENT

We believe that there is an infinite loop of learning and action that leads to improvement. 

We work with organizations to better understand and advance the work that drives their mission.

ECOSYSTEMS

We take an ecological - not a reductionist - approach to understanding.

We always attempt to consider the complex factors that are inherent

in the larger systems in which people and programs are embedded.​

COLLABORATION

We are experts in research, evaluation, and strategy.

We are not experts of every organization’s culture and context. 

We work collaboratively with partners in order to generate trust and greater long-term sustainability.

We are a minority owned women's business.
For each project, we assemble a team of experts with experience and knowledge tailored to the specific needs of the client.
