Abt Associates is once again a proud sponsor of the Association for Public Policy Analysis & Management’s (APPAM) 2021 Fall Research Conference rescheduled to March 27-29 2022. This year’s theme, the Power of Inclusion: Incorporating Diverse Voices in Public Policy Analysis and Management reflects our own commitment to ensuring that equity-related principles and practices are meaningfully integrated across all phases of our work.  Whether we’re studying programs focused on health, labor, disabilities, or education, we look for the intersections, prioritize equity, and drive real-world impact.
