Healthy Eating Research (HER) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation that supports research on policy, systems, and environmental (PSE) strategies with strong potential to promote the health and well-being of children, and that advance health equity in the areas of nutrition, nutritional disparities, and food security. As a funding organization, HER has committed to funding research with an intentional health equity lens. But, what does this process really look like in action and how can researchers effectively contribute to equity? How does equity become part of the evidence base?

Presenters in this webinar will describe a framework for increasing equity impact in research, share their experiences applying and carrying out principles of equitable evaluation in their own work, and address the added complexity of issues such as white privilege and institutional racism when designing and carrying out research.
