We work with...
Changemakers that advance equity and justice, helping them to accelerate and sustain their impact. Our clients are leaders in nonprofit, philanthropic, and government organizations.
Our firm takes its name from the founder’s two young sons and the generations before them in whose honor they were named: Black men and women who took to heart and embodied the idea that it takes a village, living their lives in service to their families, their communities, and their country.
At Evan James, we continue that tradition through our work, helping our clients plan and deliver strategies, policies, programs, and practices designed to reverse unequal outcomes for historically and presently marginalized groups.
Simply put, we help our clients solve problems that matter.
We do this by...
Gathering Data That Informs Decision-Making
Analyzing Clients' Strengths and Opportunities
Researching Best and Promising Practices
Developing Solutions and Implementation Plans
Strategic and Operational Planning
Strengthening organizations’ approach and impact
Financial Sustainability Planning
Increasing organizations’ ability to resource themselves
