Through workshops and clinics with operational staff and government clients, joint research teams, active field coordination, as well as research products such as seminars, papers, and policy briefs, DIME builds capacity while forming a wider community of practice. DIME accompanies impact evaluations during their entire life-cycle. It starts with assessing demand, identifying research questions, as well as supporting project implementation, high quality data collection, analysis, and dissemination of results.The UX designer will contribute to advancing DIME’s objectives and initiatives by providing design guidance and applying human centered design methods. They will contribute to the following initiatives and beyond to expand the digital capacity and systems associated with institutions and counterparts who apply impact evaluation in policy programs.

Central to this system is a web interface where users will be able to effortlessly engage with this rich repository of knowledge using natural language through a user-friendly interface powered by generative AI, making informed decisions more achievable than ever before.
