Lead Change with Evidence-Based Decision Making

Explore our evidence-building solutions and resources.

We’re dedicated to making evidence-based decision making the default, not the exception.

A rallying cry for evidence-based decision making to lead change and drive impact can be heard throughout public, private, and philanthropic sectors. Together, with our partners in the evidence community, we are rising to the occasion with data, research, and evidence-building tools to help restore trust in government and advance equity for underserved communities. We’re not only elevating evidence to improve lives, we’re dedicated to making evidence-based decision making the default and not the exception.

Solving today’s most pressing social challenges requires putting data and evidence in the hands of leaders at the forefront of inspiring change. We also understand that for too many, for too long, research has been something done to underserved communities, not with them, and we’re committed to strengthening their resiliency and responding to their collective needs by empowering them with data, dashboards, evaluations, and other tools to generate their own insights about what works.

Ultimately, our experts are passionate about getting federal agencies, state and local governments, foundations, and commercial organizations the evidence they need, when they need it to drive change for a better future.
