Since 2020, Lived Experience Experts, the Annie E. Casey Foundation, Casey Family Programs (CFP) and the William T. Grant Foundation have worked in partnership with a broad array of experts, stakeholders and people with lived experience to draft research gaps that span community-based support, child protective services, out-of-home care, and post-permanency services.
Transformative research is co-designed by academics and those with lived experience. It is grounded in principles of diversity, equity and inclusion. It changes how we support families both in both what we research and how we research it.
In this webinar series, academics will co-present with youth, families, and providers across a range of topics, exploring how researchers can engage meaningfully with communities, honoring their lived experiences inclusively through a social justice lens.
