As an established leader in monitoring, evaluation (M&E), and research, WI-HER is recognized for rigorous processes that ensure excellence and impact in development programs across multiple sectors — from health to energy, the environment, economic development, and beyond.
WI-HER’s team includes M&E and research experts with years of experience conducting qualitative and quantitative analyses; surveys at multiple levels; key informant interviews, focus group discussions, collaborative and participatory research, and group consultations; and various types of systematic and literature reviews.
Our M&E systems and tools promote diversity, equity, inclusion and accessibility throughout all stages of monitoring, evaluation and research, maintain excellence in the quality of our work, drive equitable impact in the results that we measure, and foster strong collaborating, learning, and adapting (CLA).
WI-HER has carried out numerous mixed-method assessments and analyses to examine how programs impact and are impacted by various public and private service delivery outcomes. We are recognized for expertise in designing assessments that examine how biases and inequalities affect sectoral outcomes. WI-HER serves as the lead partner for gender on the USAID EVAL-ME II project, which supports USAID missions by conducting performance and impact evaluations, supporting performance monitoring, building M&E capacity, and exchanging lessons learned.
