What are the true impacts of the research that we engage in? How do we assess the credibility of research and its ability to empower change in our communities? What about the impacts of research failures on scientists themselves? Most importantly, how do we ensure that the cultural responsiveness is practiced within research where communities are more than research samples, and have them collaborate in data generation and retain autonomy over their own data?

This one-day conference will explore the breadth of impacts that are incurred in research and the effects they can have on data, scientists, and community. The event will share best evidence and practice via presentations, interviews and small group discussions. All faculties, and career levels - at McMaster and beyond - are welcome to attend!

Registration is capped at 50 participants.
