Power & Partnerships in Community Engagement: Strategizing with IRWG Affiliates
In partnership with IRWG, this special session of Ginsberg Center’s Power & Partnership in Community Engagement is designed with IRWG affiliates and grant applicants in mind.
This interactive workshop will introduce participants to key principles of equity-focused community engagement and identify some ways that relationships of power shape:
- the structure and terms of partnership agreements between community organizations and university partners;
- participation dynamics in university-community research projects;
- grant proposal preparation, knowledge production & dissemination; and more.
Participants will encounter and generate strategies for re-shaping inequitable power dynamics, and identify ways to apply key principles to their own community-engaged work.
