Ethnologica is a certified women-owned business (WBE) located in Philadelphia. We are a research consultancy firm with a focus on community-based ethnography. We collaborate with public and private organizations to collect data, answer questions and innovate programs. Through participatory and arts-based methods, we invite voices and stories into research and evaluation processes that may not otherwise be heard. As anthropologists, we bring cross-cultural competencies to all of our projects, from small-scale evaluations to multi-year collaborations. Ethnologica is guided by values of inclusion with the goal of increasing gender, racial and economic equity.
We believe in the transformative potential of community-based methods
We listen to the experiences of participants and stakeholders to develop strategies that meaningfully enhance programs and policies. Whether working with kids canoeing on the rivers of Philadelphia, healthcare providers in health clinics in Cambodia, human rights activists in Belize, or urban gardeners telling their stories on film, we prioritize the voices of our collaborators, knowing that they are the experts on their lives.
