Social E Summer Speaker Series: Community Based Research with Sophie Theis

This summer we invited guest speakers to join our Social E Lab teams in a virtual conversation to explore topics and common questions related to their work. In our first session with Sophie Theis (M.S. ‘12), Qualitative Research Specialist at Women’s World Banking, the students discussed best methods for community based research. Sophie explored questions like…How do you connect and build trust with research respondents remotely? What are useful tips when conducting interviews through hired local researchers? How do you navigate power dynamics within this type of work?

Hear the answers to these and other questions here.
