On January 24, 2019, Dr. Paul Elam participated in a panel at Mathematica’s Washington, DC, Office. The discussion brought together leading voices from across academia, philanthropy, and government to consider how research can be done with communities rather than to communities, how to define and provide examples of culturally responsive research, and how to outline practical strategies researchers can use to address culture and context in their practice.

Featured participants:

  • Sharon E. Jones, CEO, Jones Diversity (Moderator)
  • Barbara Chow, Director of education, Heising-Simons Foundation
  • Paul Elam, Chief strategy officer, Michigan Public Health Institute
  • Diane Herz, Chief diversity officer, Mathematica
  • Aleta Meyer, Senior social science research analyst, Administration for Children and Families
