IRBs have always been charged with addressing issues of equity, justice, and access, but there is an increased need for IRBs and institutions to not only expand their roles, but be more integrated in and, in some cases, lead change at their organizations. This webinar will provide perspectives and a case study approach to explore how the IRB review function and oversight responsibilities can facilitate DEIJ initiatives, the role the IRB can play in different organizational structures, and the key elements to consider in developing and implementing a DEIJ workplan.
Topics will include:
(1) The role of the IRB in DEIJ initiatives including whether and how it should be expanded;
(2) How the IRB should work with other institutional DEIJ initiatives and how to conduct a landscape analysis;
(3) How to initiate, develop and implement a DEIJ workplan;
(4) The role the IRB plays in community engagement and community representation;
(5) How the IRB can use a DEIJ lens to evaluate protocols;
(6) The key operational and infrastructure components needed to support an infrastructure for research conduct consistent with DEIJ best practices.
Attendees will have an opportunity to explore developing a workplan template for their organization and learning from others what has worked or failed at their respective organizations. Time is also reserved for questions.
