  • Social workers and public health professionals serving as agency leaders, directors, program managers, and program evaluators
  • Implementation researchers and practitioners


The Institute will support social workers and public health professionals to:

  • Identify strategies for equitable implementation of innovations and evidence-based and evidence-informed practices
  • Use evidence to promote improved and equitable outcomes for people and communities
  • The Institute will support implementation researchers and practitioners to:
  • Identify research questions that amplify an equity focus
  • Identify changes that are needed to the pedagogy, frameworks, and measures of implementation science to incorporate attention to equity
  • Use methods that increase stakeholder participation in implementation efforts

This event is jointly sponsored by the Jordan Institute for Families (UNC School of Social Work), the Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute, and the National Implementation Research Network, with support from the Annie E. Casey Foundation.

Due to an overwhelming amount of interest in this event, the event has reached capacity for in-person registration; however, there is a free, online live stream option for plenary talks during the two-day Summer Institute (June 11-12).

The event has also launched a waitlist for individuals still interested in attending the Summer Institute in person.
