${name} CBRTC Co-Lead, MRA Principal Investigator
Dr. Shauna MacKinnon

Dr. MacKinnon, Professor and Chair, Department of Urban and Inner-City Studies, has conducted research on social and economic issues for over 20 years with a focus on public policy, poverty and inequality. As described in her 2018 edited book, Practising Community Based Research: Stories of Engagement, Empowerment and Mobilization, Dr. MacKinnon subscribes to a social justice, community-led research approach to research, actively engaging with community partners beyond research to mobilize knowledge and use research as a tool to advocate for progressive change.

Dr. MacKinnon’s interest in expanding student and community-researcher involvement in community-based participatory research, inspired the idea of establishing a CBRTC at the University of Winnipeg, in partnership with the MRA.

Dr. MacKinnon was also a presenter on the February 16th CBRTC panel discussion on Community-Based Research.
