Webinar: Measuring Race and Racism in Studies of Research Use

“Measuring Race and Racism in Studies of Research Use” is the fourth webinar in a series focused on bringing critical race perspectives to research that examines how to improve the use of research evidence in policy and practice. Past sessions have addressed the ways race matters for how research is used, what research is used, and whose research is used. This session focuses on concrete strategies for incorporating attention to race in a study’s research design.

Targeted toward researchers who want to develop richer and more nuanced approaches to examining race in their own research, this webinar offers examples, strategies, and challenges related to the conceptualization and operationalization of race in research design.
