Virtual Event

The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine’s Standing Committee on Advancing Science Communication and the Civic Science Fellows, through the Rita Allen Foundation, are pleased to host the first of two roundtable discussions featuring leaders and community partners from six collaborations that facilitate community engagement around science, on topics such as COVID-19, climate, and the environment. Leaders from each collaboration will share insights on how to:

  • Build connections, trust, and relationships in diverse communities
  • Engage in ways that center local interests, recognize differences, and honor local voices
  • Collect and use data and research evidence
  • Build processes that allow for flexibility and iteration
  • Identify and work toward mutual benefits

In this first roundtable discussion, program leaders and community partners will offer practical ideas for how they have approached these distinct aspects of collaboration, what it took to achieve their successes, and the types of systemic supports from researchers, policymakers, funders, and other organizations that could help them overcome challenges.
