Aasha Abdill 15

An independent research, evaluation and strategy consultant, Aasha Abdill manages efforts to assess and enhance the impact of an organization’s initiatives. She also works to increase the diversity of those providing skills, insights and scholarship to philanthropy, policy, and nonprofit practices. Her latest endeavor is using micro-ethnography as a tool to evaluate the effectiveness of seminars and workshops designed to cultivate inclusive dialogues and equitable spaces.

Aasha recently published “Fathering from the Margins,” a well-received sociological manuscript which analyzes community beliefs and behaviors related to fatherhood and the dangers of externalized and internalized unconscious biases on black father involvement.

Aasha holds a master’s degree in quantitative methodology from Columbia University and a doctorate in sociology from Princeton, with a concentration in organizational theory, race and ethnicity, and community studies.
