The pre-conference workshop will convene advanced students and early career researchers, practitioners, and advocates interested in addressing epistemic harm that can be perpetuated through research and practice. Participants will broaden their perspectives on new and emerging trends in equity-based research and practice, which will highlight how addressing these trends can assist in recalibrating their research programs and clinical practice.
The workshop, “Pathways to Equity-Based Aging Research and Practice,” will be held on November 02, 2022, from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm, in Indianapolis, Indiana. This interactive workshop will include small group sessions with diverse speakers who will share their experiences with incorporating an equity lens in their research design and clinical practice, working with community stakeholders, non-harmful reporting of research findings, and grant mechanisms that have been successful in furthering their research careers. In addition, the workshop will foster networking and build connections among participants and panelists. Hosted by Black in Gerontology & Geriatrics (BIGG)
