UW ICTR and the UW Collaborative Center for Health Equity (CCHE) are excited to launch the Just Research program with a full day workshop for researchers and research staff to be held on October 28, 2022, in Signe Skott Cooper Hall (School of Nursing).
Just Research is a new program for researchers and research staff to learn skills to promote diversity in study participation and research equity. Created from a decade of experience with community engagement, inclusive research practices, and the Building Trust initiative, Just Research is a partnership between CCHE and the Milwaukee-based Center for Community Engagement and Health Partnerships (CCE), and is sponsored by ICTR. Susan Passmore, Senior Associate Director of CCHE notes,
We are so excited to be offering this new program based on research done here at UW! Our goal is to provide access to knowledge and skills not often part of traditional research training and what could be better than working with Gina Green-Harris, who brings so much experience and knowledge.
This free workshop will be facilitated by Passmore and CCE Director Gina Green-Harris. Participants can expect a full day of interactive exercises, skill practice, and discussion covering topics including the role of bias in research engagement, perspectives in community engagement, and effective communication.
