3-Part Workshop Series: OCTRI Research Forum

May 3 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

Doing Better Research: Improving Practice through Intersectionality, Positionality, and Reflexivity

In this three-part interactive workshop series, we will introduce participants to the concepts of intersectionality, positionality, and reflexivity (one each week). Attention will be given to how the incorporation of these practices can improve the reach and impact of research. Sessions will be held on three consecutive Fridays – April 26, May 3, and May 10 – from 1:30 to 3:00pm (90 mins).

  • April 26: Intersectionality, presented by Natassja Pal and Kyla Tompkins
  • May 3: Positionality, presented by Megan Lafferty and Summer Newell
  • May 10: Reflexivity, presented by Anaïs Tuepker

The series content was developed by: Liz Hulen, Megan Lafferty, Summer Newell, Sarah Ono, Natassja Pal, Kyla Tompkins, Anaïs Tuepker, and Dylan Waller, with support from the Center to Improve Veteran Involvement in Care (CIVIC) and the Veterans Rural Health Resource Center, both at the VA Portland Health Care System.

All are welcome. No previous training in or knowledge of on intersectionality, positionality, or reflexivity is needed to participate. You are strongly encouraged to commit to attending all three workshops, as they build on each other.

Register via Compass. Sessions will include breakout discussions, thus will not be recorded.
