Forward Together

Forward Together centers Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and other people, families, and communities of color while it aims to shift culture, build movements, and change structures and policies to advance bodily autonomy and end reproductive oppression. Korwin Consulting is partnering with its project directors and community organizers to support the integration of evaluative thinking in the organization’s transformative work. Leaders are participating in small group learning experiences, one-on-one conversations with a member of the evaluation team, and exploratory/practice assignments with other staff to help build knowledge and interest in evaluation strategies throughout the organization.  Our work together is grounded in community oriented and participatory evaluation strategies to build internal capacity and develop a strategic learning stance to support the organization’s life-changing, community-centered work.

In another project, Korwin Consulting is collaborating with the leadership and partners of Forward Together’s Strong Families New Mexico program, which brings organizations and activists together to build strong communities and create state and local policies that work for families. Through participatory evaluation strategies and co-created evaluation tools, Korwin Consulting is supporting Strong Families New Mexico in telling the story of its development, impact, and lessons learned from its first 11 years and helping to inform its future growth.

Korwin Consulting also partnered with Forward Together to evaluate the Stepping Into Power program, a movement building fellowship which brings together women, people of color, queer, trans and gender non-conforming leaders to deepen community with one another and gain transformative skills on multiple levels—individually, organizationally, and for movement leadership.
