Hear from our valued partners.
At Apex, we specialize in Systems Learning™, providing evaluation services, program planning, needs assessment, facilitation, and technical assistance – including technology for data collection and reporting.
Unlike many data firms, we see technology as a means to an end, to help partners use data to build, share, test, and evolve their mental models about their work. That’s how we define the process of learning. It’s why reporting data is so important to us – putting information in the right hands at the right time in the right format for learning and decision-making. We believe effective evaluation and use of data can help organizations change systems, policies, conditions, and behaviors at the individual, community, organizational, and governmental levels.
As we say at Apex, “Context gives meaning to data; data without context is meaningless.” Our Systems Learning™ framework for Equitable Evaluation promotes sense-making from information, builds a body of credible evidence that includes lived experience, and centers perspectives of those most affected by the work.
We align ourselves with organizations and programs focused on addressing the wicked problems of health and education disparities, poverty and income inequality, and racism and discrimination. Our partners range from districts and schools, state agencies and federal entities, to nonprofits and change-makers across the United States. Apex has been honing our approach for over twenty years, focusing on a wide range of initiatives that address health, academic, social, and economic inequities. We focus our work on education, health, and social services, and the intersection of those sectors.
We care deeply about our community and our ability to support partners who are contributing to positive change. Their perspectives are invaluable as we do this work together, and we invite you to hear directly from them.
