The human experience, and our related ability to affect social change, is complex. Data – whether from a quantitative dataset or derived from qualitative findings – allows us to parse out these complexities and highlight the trends, structures, and progress often felt but unseen by the naked eye. Global Insight uses data to model and map the intricacies of program impact, lived experience, and social change, and employ that information to engender robust change across a wide range of variables.
Our work is about catalyzing social change. We believe a mixed-methodological approach adds depth and nuance, which would otherwise be ignored by the siloed nature of traditional research. Moreover, pairing quantitative data with rich qualitative findings presents a truly comprehensive view of program impact, organizational sustainability, and human experience. We then feed this powerful information into integrated strategies and recommendations for our clients’ problems.
Gender is the lens through which we see the world, make decisions, and find value in our communities. The application of a gender-sensitive approach is therefore requisite to all of our work at Global Insight. We consciously and consistently embed our gender-sensitive approach in all of our work. In so doing, we are able to more fully understand the intersection of identity and programmatic impact and sustainability.
