Providing years of expertise in research, evaluation, human rights, and advocacy.
Since 1974, Rainbow Research has developed a reputation for engaging in participatory, systems-oriented research and evaluation with a strong, consistent focus on social justice. Today, our majority BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) staff and board deepen that tradition as we redefine our work through decolonizing frames.
What We Do
Rainbow Research has a proven track record in providing quality, actionable, evaluation services that serve organization and community change at both programmatic and policy levels.
Increasing evaluation knowledge and skills can help funders, grantees, and communities more effectively commission and use evaluations.
Rainbow Research is completing an Environmental Justice (EJ) landscape assessment looking at the diverse EJ issues in Minnesota, and getting a sense of the priorities of many groups working to advance common environmental quality in Minnesota.
We have extensive training and experience in all phases of evaluation, using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
