Our research team came together after sharing our experiences with disseminating our research and work outside of traditional academic spaces. Given the growing focus on translational research- ensuring academic work is applied to and with the populations of study- we recognized the importance of formally examining self promotion processes for faculty that often face barriers due to their intersectional identities, areas of research, and access to resources. We applied for and were awarded a grant from the American Psychological Association's Office of Ethnic Minority Affairs via the Commission on Ethnic Minority Recruitment, Retention, and Training in Psychology II (CEMRRAT2) Task Force. This project is a result of this funding mechanism and our desire to engage in Research to Share! Start sharing your research on social media platforms using #Research2Share
