Researchers’ experiences inform recommendations for funders to facilitate racial equity in research


This brief aims to connect researchers’ experiences and funders’ work in racial equity. We interviewed several Child Trends researchers (referred to simply as “researchers” throughout this report) who have many years of experience integrating racial equity in research. We aimed to understand researchers’ motivations for engaging in racial equity work, garner examples of how they have incorporated racial equity in their research, and determine the support needed to integrate racial equity methods in research. Based on findings from these interviews—and discussions with our program officer at the Annie E. Casey Foundation—we provide key recommendations for funders to better support equity-focused research.
