Useful and actionable focus

Regardless of the type of project, it is our goal to ensure that the information we provide is useful in guiding action. To achieve this goal, we typically use strategies such as mapping out the intended use of the information, identifying the stakeholders who will be interested in the findings, and establishing a strategy for sharing the results with these stakeholders.

We strive to provide insights that are clear and meaningful. We provide actionable recommendations for using data to improve services, develop new intervention approaches, advocate for policy changes, develop partnerships, or strengthen your organization.

Our team and our project has increased awareness on how we do and do not advance equity with our project. With Community Research Solutions’ support, we have a clearer vision on how our project can address equity and measure it in the future.
