Research Roundup Webinar Series

The Office of Research and Evaluation hosts periodic webinars summarizing research on different topics, including those most closely aligned to the Board’s Goals and Guardrails. Each webinar is about an hour long, with opportunities for attendees to ask questions. Most of our webinars are recorded and posted on this website for those who wish to view them at a later date.

Please join our next Roundup:
