Engage for Change:
A Symposium on Participatory Research to Advance Economic Mobility

Sunday, August 25  |  8:00 AM – 3:00 PM

APHSA envisions a future of human services that is human-centered, community-driven, and driven by a fierce commitment to equity, diversity, inclusion, and belonging (EDIB). Drawing on participatory action research (PAR) principles, APHSA seeks to bring human services practitioners, researchers, and people with lived experience together in a one-day workshop extension at the 2024 EMWB conference. 

Through this workshop, participants will explore how to effectively collaborate with people with lived experience (PWLE) in human services research and co-design an economic mobility and well-being research agenda for the human services sector with community members. The symposium is planned to feature:

  • A full-day workshop is planned and facilitated in partnership with PWLE.

  • Attendees learn PAR basics and its practical application to human services work, including fostering relationships between researchers, practitioners, and PWLE; translating PAR into sound human services policy and practice; and leveraging PAR to enhance and promote EDIB.

  • Participation from researchers, human services leaders, and practitioners, and PWLE.

  • Attendees identify human services-specific use cases that are ripe for applying PAR within human services, leading to concrete action stemming from the Symposium.​​
