Public sector staff serves us all. At Civic Impact, we serve the hard working people who have dedicated themselves to public service.

Civic Impact knows the power governments and NGOs have to transform the way people live for the better. We have seen it first-hand, not just among the governments and NGOs we work with around the globe, but through our own personal experiences as previous staff in these same organizations.

We are committed to helping you more easily solve your challenges using data and evidence. Our approach is not to do it for you, but to give you the support you need to do it yourself. So that we can meet you where you are, we offer this help in a few different ways.

GovEx Academy offers a full suite of online trainings to help you improve your skills managing, analyzing, and communicating with data. If you are interested in something bigger, we also offer customized on-site trainings for your organization. In-person courses are also available regionally for What Works Cities participants in the form of the Academy’s PopUps.

Shared experience is powerful, but it can be hard for public sector staff to connect with their peers who are spread far and wide. Organized by policy focus, our online communities of practice are places to find your peers and other policy experts, whether they are down the block or around the globe.

If you are looking for a partner to get you started or improve the way you are leveraging data to solve problems, our customized coaching (aka, technical assistance) can get you there. Because we are committed to helping you increase your capacity to put data to use for your organization, coaching is focused on a targeted project that will help you achieve a goal while we show you the most relevant skills and practices. In the end, we will leave you with a clear map of how to scale these practices throughout your organization to solve a multitude of challenges.

In an age where ever tightening public budgets must meet more rapid calls for delivery with less room for error, evidence-informed decisions are critical. The Center for Applied Public Research can get you started applying evidence to your decisions with plain-spoken tools, easy-to-use templates, and real-world examples which guide public sector employees through complex decisions.
