Conversations with the community make a difference. Community development practitioners and policymakers recognize the value of conducting research with communities as partners through community-engaged research. This approach invites stakeholders into the research process by centering their perspectives and elevating their expertise. These discussions help to create better services, understand policy barriers, and learn what’s working best.

This webinar will feature examples of how community-engaged methods can highlight the experience of workers and jobseekers. Attendees will hear what researchers are learning from these conversations and how institutions, organizations, or communities can leverage the same principles.
