Qualitative Research 101 was a timely and insightful panel discussion that invited attendees to consider how the community informs qualitative research.

By participating in this session, we hope that attendees can: 1) understand how the community can strengthen qualitative methodology; 2) create structures to support and sustain community engagement in research; and 3) center community experiences to determine qualitative methodology.

Attendees received a key takeaways one-pager, a slide deck, and an additional resource supporting community-engaged qualitative research.

Attendees are encouraged to use the ideas and practices discussed during the panel discussion to promote qualitative practices at their organizations and research institutions that equitably centers community expertise and knowledge.

This workshop had Spanish language and ASL interpretation, and recordings are made publicly available in both English and Spanish language.
