Coactive Change is a woman and minority owned consulting firm that partners with change agents seeking to advance equity and dismantle systems of oppression. Our supports include thought partnership, evaluation capacity building, and collaborative and participatory evaluation — all fusing anthropology, ethnography, and evaluation in service of advancing social justice.

We understand that evaluation represents a way of valuing and producing knowledge and truth claims that can wield a great deal of power, and we are committed to centering change agents’ and communities’ lived expertise in this process.
