Dr. Lashawn Richburg-Hayes

The University of Pennsylvania Predoctoral Training Program in Interdisciplinary Research Methods for Field-based Research in Education, sponsored by the Institute for Education Sciences (IES), welcomes Dr. Lashawn Richburg-Hayes to our weekly seminar series.

 Implementing a Culturally Responsive and Equitable Evaluation: Lessons Learned and Future Considerations
Presented by Dr. Lashawn Richburg-Hayes, Vice President of Education, Insight Policy Research

In the quest to address income inequality and intergenerational poverty, it is critical to seek answers to the questions “What works?” and “For whom?” However, until researchers and funders recognize and attempt to account for the broader context surrounding the studies we conduct, our work will continue to shine a narrow light on potential solutions. Both research and data reflect the perspectives of the researcher and the data collector, as well as the societal context. Given the widespread fallacy that research and data are objective, this recognition will require intentional effort on the part of researchers. Ignoring these facts will only perpetuate recommendations for incomplete policy actions.
