Few researchers or community leaders are taught how to initiate and sustain community-engaged partnerships; however, engaged research – which includes community-engaged research, research-practice-partnerships, and research co-production methodologies – has been shown to produce research findings that are often more reflective of, and usable by, communities themselves.

This forum was facilitated by Kauffman Senior Program Officer in Entrepreneurship Chhaya Kolavalli.

Participants included Dale Fickett, Elsie L. Harper-Anderson, Julie Hui, Mikaiil Hussein, Deloyd Parker, Lutalo Sanifu, Sigmund Shipp, Alisha Small, Gretchen Susi, Udayan Tandon, Jacob Wagner, and Pedro Zamora.
