This brief explains how to engage stakeholders in your research and the benefits of doing so. We use examples from recent early care and education studies to illustrate how Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) stakeholders have been included in research. These examples show what you can learn by listening to and talking with (engaging) the people or groups affected by the services your agency provides (the stakeholders). We also include resource tips with links in case you want to learn more about particular strategies for improving the quality and usefulness of your research.
