W+GRA Featured as Case Study

UNC Charlotte’s Women + Girls Research Alliance is featured as a case study in a new work on the practice of community-based research.

"Community-based Qualitative Research: Approaches for Education and the Social Sciences" was published by SAGE Publications; it was authored by Laura Ruth Johnson, associate professor, Department of Educational Technology, Research and Assessment, College of Education, Northern Illinois University.

"Women + Girls Research Alliance (W+GRA) is honored to be featured as one of three case studies in Dr. Johnson’s text," said Heather Brown, W+GRA executive director. "Community-based research is meant to be collaborative, critical and transformative. Our case study features the unique ways in which our work promotes collaboration between researchers and community, provides methods and opportunities for new voices to be heard in the research process and shares research results so that communities can use those results to shape practices and policies that are important to them and to their vision for their communities."
