Openlands commits to ensuring that we are strong and highly functioning at every level of operation.

The effectiveness and impact of our work is directly tied to the strength of our organization. At Openlands, we believe that program evaluation is every bit as important as program implementation. We want to know—through well-constructed studies and evidence—what impact our work is having and what improvements are needed to maximize that impact. For Openlands, such evaluation is a measure of not just program quality but our own organizational integrity.
