Our Deep Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

We understand that quality insights begin with diverse perspectives, so we foster a deep commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion within our work and among our staff, and we thrive because of it. Our work is at its best when we include different perspectives and draw on diverse networks.

Mathematica’s experts come together from different backgrounds and have diverse lived experiences, enabling us to collaborate with other organizations to build equity into learning agendas, programs, and evaluations, with a focus on broad and accessible dissemination of findings.

Shaping Policymaking since 1968

For more than half a century, we’ve been known as the pioneers behind research and policy advancements that have transformed the world. We conducted the first social policy experiment in the United States, the New Jersey Negative Income Tax Experiment, to test ways of encouraging people with low income to work. Today, we continue to dive into urgent social challenges right alongside our partners, determining how action leads to outcomes that help people, institutions, and communities affect real change in real time.
