Presented by the Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities (ARCC), this session will focus on presenting strategies for community-based organizations to build and strengthen research readiness and capacity. For organizations that are currently engaged or interested in research collaborations, implementing processes and tools that support your research engagement can ensure that the research will benefit your mission, your organization and the communities you serve.
This may include:
– assessing your organization’s research capacity,
– drafting research principles or values for your organization,
– developing community research priorities/agenda, and
– adopting forms or checklists for research requests from academics.

Examples from local community-based organizations and networks will be shared. Confirmed speakers include Sherida Morrison (Demoiselle 2 Femme), Kevin Rak (Enlace), and Sarah Gabriella Hernandez (Little Village Research Forum).

Light refreshments will be served. Parking validation will be provided for communitiy attendees.

Session will also be available through live online streaming and will be recorded.
