Developing Spaces for Intervention with Columbia University
After securing a grant and partnering with the NYC Department of Probation, I worked with researchers at Columbia University to increase efficiency and overall productivity throughout their intervention initiative – E-Worth. The mission of the organization is to uplift at-risk African American women in New York City with technology.
I implemented web-based collaboration tools to increase the rate of publication and content production, while also managing and implementing best practices. We were under the watchful eye of the Institutional Review Board and we experienced challenges unique to academically produced research with human subjects. That said, I provided effective strategic consul to the team of researchers. I also provided the team at E-Worth with a workflow framework to on-board and integrate researchers from the Columbia School of Social Work.
Ultimately, the E-Worth team was left with a valuable toolkit, communicable best-practices, and efficiency frameworks which now allows them to focus on what means most – their vision to Empower Women on the Road to Health.
