Since 1985, JBS International, Inc. (JBS) has delivered research, monitoring and evaluation, technical assistance, information collection, knowledge management, and marketing services to clients across the United States and around the world. JBS also provides substantial expertise in public health communications, information technology, policy analysis, performance measurement, instructional design, on-line and in-person training, and information resource center management. JBS provides these and other services to critical sectors in challenging environments. In education, for example, JBS has extensive experience in conducting assessments; evaluating programs, projects and activities; and assisting international development clients in designing new educational efforts at all levels. In addition to experience with education, youth, and the labor force, JBS has worked extensively in the areas of gender justice; domestic and intimate partner violence; child welfare; social, democratic, and economic transitions; disability programs and services; and the unique challenges facing culturally diverse, minority, and marginalized populations. JBS’s Gender Practice emerged from the company’s fundamental commitment to gender equality and women’s rights. JBS believes gender equality is a transformational force that enhances the well-being of societies around the world and enables them to flourish. As a result, the JBS Global Gender Practice seeks to apply evidence-based research to gender programs, identify the root causes of inequality, and construct development hypotheses fueled by theories of change.
