This event is hosted by dScout.

In a difficult and challenging time for society as we knew it, we believe it's crucial to shed light on those working in research roles that help others in need.

So we brought together researchers at local, state, and federal groups & nonprofits to share how their research serves their target communities—and how yours can better serve your audience, too.

Learn how their work impacts lives and livelihoods, how it's shaped by the unique and transformative moment we're living through, and thoughtful strategies to ensure your research makes a difference.

Bring your questions for the Q&A!

Panelists Taranamol, Nate, and Aditi will share:

  • How their work is different than traditional, business- and capital-focused research
  • How the COVID-19 pandemic and response to police brutality are shaping their work
  • Strategies for making UX and design practices at your org community and service minded
