Join a Live Online Discussion with a community of researchers to explore current challenges practicing CBR and potential solutions together

About this Event

Community-Based Research Canada has listened to feedback from our members asking for more opportunities to share knowledge with peers and form a community of practice to do better work for the communities we support. We’re thrilled to provide a platform for dynamic live online discussions on topics that matter to you, starting this May 14th at 12pm Est, a time when many of us would have been congregating in person for C2UExpo 2020 in Sault Ste. Marie.

Are you experiencing challenges conducting community-based research in this difficult time of working with communities at a distance? This live online discussion will be moderated by CBR Canada on Zoom and open the floor to you. We’ll ask participants key questions (identified by you), break into smaller groups to discuss, and come back and share thoughts/ideas as a larger group, which will be recorded live in a Google doc. We will problem solve and support each other.

Take a minute to share which three topics you are most interested in discussing May 14th here:

We will share a Zoom link for registered participants in a follow-up email.
