Lessons for Health Equity Academic Researchers

"Prompt Black and other health equity researchers of color to radically imagine their research as a transformative tool to advance health equity."
- Dr. Lisa Bowleg

Dr. Lisa Bowleg
Professor, Applied Social Psychology,
George Washington University
Founder and President,
Intersectionality Training Institute

Examine and explore:

  • How intersectionality challenges conventional assumptions, theoretical and methodological approaches to health equity research
  • The importance of qualitative approaches and intersectional frameworks
  • System and structural-level mitigation strategies for researchers, departments, and universities

via Dr. Bowleg's recent article: "The Master’s Tools Will Never Dismantle the Master’s House"

A virtual event for Rutgers faculty made possible through a grant from the CACP Beloved Community Initiative.
