Integrating Diverse Populations in Research: Perils, Pitfalls, and Promise

Date Thu, Oct 29
Time 1: 00 PM - 2: 30 PM
Location Online


GHUCCTS leaders are joining together with community partners to facilitate this webinar that focuses on engaging and integrating diverse populations in research. Attendees will be provided with resources and best practices to expand representation of diversity in research and enhance capacity for language access. 

Webinar Summary: People define themselves through multiple cultural identities including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, language, disability, migration experience, and others. Increasing awareness of the critical importance of multiple cultural identities and how these identities intersect is essential to advancing scientific methods. Demonstrating an awareness of and sensitivity to the multi-faceted ways in which people define themselves is also a means of making research environments more “welcoming” to diverse populations. Workshop leaders include individuals from a diverse range of lived experiences and engagement with diverse groups. Challenges and potential solutions will be discussed.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Describe ways that research can be enhanced through expanded representation of diversity and consideration of multiple cultural identities
  2. Enhance capacity for language access and linguistic competence in health research

This webinar is a part of the Translational Science 2020 Experience, hosted by the Association for Clinical and Translational Science (ACTS). The Online Experience will include 7 Translational Science 2020 webinars over the course of 3 months. Each webinar will be free for members, $10 for non-member early career investigators, and $15 for non-members.
