The Center for Evidence-based Policy (Center) is a national leader in evidence-based decision making and policy design. The Center works with state policymakers in over 25 states across the country to support evidence-based decision-making. The Center is objective and nonpartisan, enabling policymakers to use high-quality evidence to guide decisions, maximize resources, and improve health outcomes.

The Center actively seeks staff who share its commitment to evidence, integrity, innovation, tangible results, and products that are independent, high-quality, evidence-based, and effective in meeting the needs of decision makers. The Center actively recruits and retains the highest quality personnel who are committed to and passionate about achieving its mission. The Center strives to be a healthy and thriving work environment where everyone, from any background, can do their best work. We are committed to an inclusive workplace that celebrates and values diversity of age, race, ethnicity, gender identity, sexual orientation, physical and mental ability, and perspective. We are dedicated to continuous improvement that enables inclusive collaboration among staff with diverse skills and perspectives, with the goal of enhancing the quality and accessibility of our work for our clients. The Center promotes leadership that inspires innovation, motivates people to perform at their highest levels, and makes the Center a great place to work.
