For more than 30 years, Equal Measure has partnered with foundations, nonprofits, and public entities—helping them “do even better” as they work to advance social change. In this partnership, we help our clients apply new ways of thinking and learning to achieve their program objectives through five service lines: program design, evaluation, capacity building, technical assistance, and communications. As a core component of this approach, we help our clients identify the root causes of social injustice from multiple historical, cultural, systemic, and structural points of view. Blending these perspectives provides clients with the best, most nuanced thinking to achieve their social change objectives—and enables us to help our clients make their communities stronger, healthier, more equitable, and more inclusive.
