Call for Writer to Serve as Consultant on Policy Briefs

The Colorado Evaluation and Action Lab, “Colorado Lab”, seeks to engage writers to develop source material for policy briefs. Our research agenda is supporting data-driven decision making with respect to the priorities that government sets for themselves.

The Colorado Lab will conduct quantitative research (e.g., trends in prenatal substance exposure; young adults aging out of foster care who experience homelessness). The writer will help to create a compelling opening for policy briefs by:

  • telling the human stories and experiences of Coloradans relative to the topic of study;
  • setting the stage with the policy context and/or the provocative nature of the problem while maintaining an objective, non-partisan voice;
  • supporting the the researchers in translating findings into digestible information; and
  • recommending strategies to amplify the findings through media.
