Results for America (RFA) is the leading, national nonprofit organization helping policymakers at all levels of government harness the power of evidence and data to solve the world’s greatest challenges. Our mission is to make investing in what works the “new normal,” so that, one day, all government leaders use rigorous evidence and quality data to inform important policy and funding decisions. We believe that data-driven and evidence-based policy decisions could significantly increase the impact of the over $1 trillion that governments spend annually to advance economic mobility and racial equity.
Founded in 2012, RFA spent its first three years partnering with policy innovators to build the credibility of evidence-based policymaking, securing early and important wins in education, expanding its work to multiple levels of government and driving awareness and demand through carefully orchestrated education and communication campaigns. During its second phase (2015-2018), RFA worked to demonstrate the power of evidence-based policymaking in ways that resonate with an even broader universe of elected officials and policymakers. Now in its third phase of work, RFA intends to demonstrate that governments at all levels can make faster, more lasting progress in accelerating economic mobility for residents when they use evidence and data in decision-making. By creating specific issue-area wins, RFA will further cement support for evidence-based policymaking among all policymakers as the “new normal.”
In September 2019, Results for America launched the Evidence in Workforce Lab (Work Lab) featuring our State and Local Workforce Fellowship to help government leaders drive workforce dollars toward evidence-based, results-driven workforce strategies that can help more communities and individuals thrive. Our second cohort of fellows was launched in May 2021 and will focus on leveraging evidence through procurements, improving job quality and equity, and building evidence of what works in workforce development.
Results for America is seeking a team member who is passionate about improving government and community outcomes and who has excellent project management, communication, and relationship building skills. The Associate Director for Workforce Development will be critical in leading our State and Local Workforce Fellowship and supporting the work of our government partners across the country.
