Equity in Research Learning Collaborative

An opportunity for our staff to learn how to make CCFP research more equitable with respect to race, ethnicity, and other forms of diversity at all stages from conceptualization to recruitment to data collection to analysis and reporting of findings.

This session will feature a discussion with Dr. Velma McBride Murry, associate provost in the Office of Research and Innovation at Vanderbilt University, Lois Autrey Betts Endowed Chair, and University Distinguished Professor in the departments of Health Policy (Vanderbilt School of Medicine) and Human and Organizational Development (Peabody College). Her research examines the significance of context to everyday life experiences of African American families and youth, focusing on processes through which racism and other social structural stressors cascade through families to influence parenting and family functioning, developmental outcomes, and adjustment among youth during critical developmental periods from middle childhood through young adulthood.
