Co-Producing Knowledge: Practitioners and Scholars Working Together to Understand Leadership.
The Ford Foundation, the Washington D.C. based Advocacy Institute and the Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service at New York University are partners in a new
leadership awards program called Leadership for a Changing World (LCW). The goal of this program is to recognize and better understand social change leadership in American
communities. As the research and documentation team for the project, we are partnering with the program's awardees to generate new knowledge about the ways in which communities trying to make social change engage in the work of leadership. In doing this work, we have begun to explore and test a new approach to working with practitioners to co-produce knowledge about leadership.
