United Way's Research Team
Members work individually, and develop meeting and communication routines that work for them. The list of topics is dynamic, and the work can involve reading, gathering data, doing literature review, or proofing. Current topics of interest include social capital and collective efficacy, integrating vulnerable populations into the workplace, housing, and parent/child education.
Team member produce summaries at four levels: overview, strategy, topical, and local context. Each summary provide input for the the next level of learning, and the final products are used to inform United Way staff, educate funding review teams, guide the development of future RFPs, and provide context for our work at large.
