On May 21st, the WU-CDTR and National Congress of American Indians Policy Research Center hosted investigators for the Strengthening Tribal-Academic Partnership workshop. The day consisted of an interactive training using the Holding Spaces toolkit and grant proposal consultations.
The Holding Spaces toolkit consists of resources and strategies to conduct community based participatory research and build relationships with tribal communities. The event included 20 participants representing investigators from WU-CDTR, partner institutions, community-based organizations, and the Katheryn M. Buder Center for American Indian Studies.
In the afternoon, investigators were invited to apply these principles in a grant proposal development workshop where they received one-on-one consultations with WU-CDTR leadership.
