Our Team

The MAI staff harbors deep, substantive knowledge of programs that work to “level the playing field” for people living in under-resourced communities. As a small woman-owned business, it is critical to maintain flexibility. For that reason, we are staffed by evaluation experts across a range of disciplines and with a broad array of technical capacities. Additionally, MAI calls on experts in the field to bring nuanced substantive and technical expertise to projects, when necessary. Our deep bench of professionals and partners, built on over thirty years in the evaluation sector, keeps us nimble and guarantees the evaluation, nonprofit, and program expertise you need.
