Lenses of Analysis

Intergenerational Collaboration

Honouring Community

We engage and prioritize anti-racist, climate justice, accessibility, anti-ageist, and trans-inclusive lenses of analysis.

We collaboratively leverage the diverse expertise of our Services Team, our advisor network, and Elders in our Research contracts.

We honour the needs, interests, and directions afforded to us by the communities the research seeks to serve.

Like our research topics, our research service options are many.

Strategic Planning and Audits

 

The service deliverer will work with the client to develop a strategic plan that brings in different lenses of analysis and points of consideration. This is appropriate for clients seeking to build policy, direction, or to catalyze holistic organizational change.

Curriculum and Content Development

 

The service deliverer will aid in reviewing and creating curriculum for fellowship, education, and training programs. This is different than delivering the training; rather, the service deliverer will support the development team by contributing a specified lens of analysis.

Research and Engagement

 

We can work with a client's team or assign one or multiple Future Ancestors Services researchers to a contract. Research can include primary or secondary-source research, and community engagement research.

Article Writing and Interviews

 

A service deliverer can contribute to magazine, newspapers, and websites upon request. These articles can be research-based, or perspective/opinion.

In addition to service delivery, we can also handle engagement registration, media promotion, donation collection, and follow-up.

Each of our public events average 150 to 500 registrants, and $400.00 to $8,000.00 in donation collection. We support our clients in research engagement by offering to take over ticket registration, social media promotion (social media graphics, flyers), and donation collection. We are also able to record the session for later posting. The client is charged the hourly rate and this time is included in the contract coordination, development, and follow-up quote.

In our Research Services Packages, you’ll find more details about our approach to service delivery,  topics, and our price structure.

Our Services Packages are perfect to bring back to teams for approval.

The price structures are based on the kind of client: Non-Profit and Youth, Private, and public. This is one of many efforts we make to ensure our services are as accessible as possible. Please select the Training Services Package that best suits the your organization.
