Our Executive Director, Lola Adedokun, is included as an author in the upcoming “Next Generation Evidence” book!

In her chapter, Leadership Is Cause; Everything Else Is Effect, Lola underscores the crucial need to invest in leaders of color, recognizing them as resilient forces in navigating today’s intricate social challenges. Despite their brilliance, they face barriers in gaining the deserved visibility, funding, and access to global platforms.

Edited by Project Evident and published by Brookings Institution Press, Next Generation Evidence features innovative thinking from leaders across policy, philanthropy, research, community, and practice, who together lay out a vision for a stronger, more equitable data and evidence ecosystem. Throughout the book, real-world case studies demonstrate how continuous evidence-building can enhance organizations and outcomes for communities.
