Who we work with

We work with organizations who are committed to advancing equity, are passionate about having a social impact in the communities they serve and are dedicated to continuous improvement and learning.

Who our work impacts

We believe that constituents and community members should be key stakeholders in evaluation efforts. Otherwise, evaluators are basing recommendations and decisions on incomplete, and possibly inaccurate, information. In many cases, the constituents most directly affected by an evaluation are not aware that the evaluation is happening and may not consider themselves stakeholders in the evaluation or even, in the organization. We address this power dynamic by working with our clients to engage constituents and community members in each stage of our projects.

Who we partner with

We recognize the limitations of our own perspectives and believe that collaborative efforts produce better results. Since we are based at Penn, we are able to take advantage of the expertise across the University and have also developed several strategic external partnerships. Our partners provide valuable content expertise and help us expand our reach to new communities.

“We’ve been in the community for over 30 years now, and we’ve gotten to the point where our neighborhood is changing, and we have new challenges. I think building a culture of data will be really important for our organization lasting another 30 years and retaining the community that we serve in that neighborhood for another 30 years.”
