OVATION is our technology product to advance social innovation in STEM. We work with our clients to show how evaluation can be used to broaden participation in STEM education. Using proven methods of appreciative inquiry, human centered data collection and analysis, program intelligence, and change management, we foster inclusive cultures and diverse achievement through opportunities to evaluate STEM education programs designed to make a difference.

If you are an institution or entrepreneur catalyzing the next generating of innovators in science and technology, you know the importance of shifting common narratives and biases, creating inclusive cultures and championing diverse achievement. Science and engineering education programs that attract new talent through relevancy, and foster intrinsic motivation through competency building, autonomy, and a sense of belonging, are far more likely to ensure students’ personal and professional success, as well as organizational resilience. This is the social innovation necessary to evolve STEM education and urban communities in the 21st century.

We specialize in assessing the inclusivity of a program’s culture and the diversity of achievement, (both cognitive and social emotional learning), among participants.

Together, we create social innovation in STEM — for your students’ success, organization’s resilience and education’s evolution. Learn more about OVATION.
