Research and Evaluation

Our evaluation places equity at the heart of all activities. From developing evaluation questions to collecting and analyzing data, and reporting findings, each step of the evaluation is critically examined in terms of its potential to support equity and avoid unintended consequences of common research practices. We have experience with phased, mixed-methods evaluation; developing and executing data-collection plans; and conducting thorough evaluations that lead to defined and achievable next steps.

Equity and Inclusivity

At Butler, we are committed to supporting one another in our learning journey. We seek to foster an environment that increases the safety of individuals to share their authentic selves and to choose how they engage at work. As a learning organization, we encourage our staff to continuously grow their understanding of intersectionality, racism, and historical trauma that exists in all realms of our society. We bring our knowledge of implicit biases, systemic oppressions, and white supremacy culture into our partnership with you as we work with you to create productive solutions.
