On March 5th, 2020, Egale invited a group of scholars and researchers engaged in LGBTQI2S research in Canada to a daylong event in Ottawa to share knowledge and best practices regarding community-centered research.
Our primary objectives were:
- To gather insights that would inform our goal of establishing a National LGBTQI2S Academic Advisory Council
- To explore the possibilities of the creation of a Research Hub housed at Egale.
- To identify strategic areas in which Egale will build capacity to better support the academic community.
This report outlines participants’ responses to key issues in community-based and community-driven research discussed at the KSD event. This report is not a comprehensive scan across the field, but instead points to current issues and generative opportunities for future interventions to better support LGBTQI2S community research in Canada.
