Social Grove is a woman-owned research consulting collaborative that offers quantitative, qualitative, and mixed-methods research support to institutions and organizations across the United States who are dedicated to improving the health and well-being of their communities. At Social Grove we believe that equity-based research and evaluation practices are most capable of catalyzing meaningful social change. We ask hard questions, like: "What counts as evidence, as data, as impact?" and "Who gets to decide?" By centering community voice in research and evaluation processes, Social Grove is able to leverage the power of stories as science and build community-rooted partnerships that bring social science research beyond laboratories and into the lived experience.
