End Grain Research and Evaluation
Evaluation Consulting Services
Dedicated to Equity and Justice
All research and evaluation efforts should aim to support and achieve equity and justice. From conceptualization and design, to implementation and dissemination, evaluation efforts should be in service to equity.
It is critical to embrace an authentic examination of the historical, structural, and systematic context driving inequity among the focus population. This information should be incorporated into all aspects of proposals, frameworks, analytic plans, and dissemination strategies.
Equitable evaluation practice values all voices, aims to be multi-culturally valid, proposes culturally responsive methods, critically examines data collection and analysis, and ensures findings are actionable and co-created with key stakeholders.
Equitable evaluation is an emerging and evolving field - we are dedicated to an authentic and reflective collaborative process with all of our partners to co-create evaluation efforts that are in service to equity and justice.
WHO WE ARE
We are trained, experienced, and dedicated to collaborating with partners to employ culturally responsive, equitable, and comprehensive research and evaluation strategies for programming and policy. Ideal partners for End Grain Research and Evaluation include individuals and organizations that share these values and dedicate efforts to support and promote an equitable and just society.
Work that aims to achieve equity and social justice seeks to eliminate avoidable and imbalanced systems and barriers that prohibit specific individuals and/or communities from achieving comparable outcomes as other individuals or communities.
