Our research shows that community-based organizations don’t feel like
they can be honest with partners when they see institutional racism.
They feel like they are “walking on eggshells,” because addressing
inequity might harm their organization or community.
In this video, Jose Miguel Hernandez, actor, artistic director and one
of our community researchers, interprets one of the results of our
research, "Walking on Eggshells" using body expressions.

The workbooks are a product of research conducted by
the ICBOs and the Cornell Lab of Ornithology over three
years, focused on how to create equitable partnerships between community-based organizations in underrepresented communities and informal science
The objective is to improve equity, diversity, and inclusion
in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics). The research comes
from questions asked by community researchers to more than 30 other community
organizations. It represents the community perspective.
Raj Pandya, one of the advisors of our AISL NSF Project focused on
creating a continental Community Science project on noise pollution,
visited the Cornell Lab of Ornithology on February 19, 2019. He
presented a seminar about Community Science and how it relates to the
Independent Community-based Organizations (ICBO) Research in
collaboration with the Lab.
