How do multi-method, and mixed methods researchers apply critical approaches to their design, data collection, data analysis, and integration processes? Together, these papers signal the growing interest in taking critical stances on how multi-method mixed methods researchers work with marginalized communities, approach the research process, and use theories and research practices that are more culturally relevant and sustaining. There is a growing call for researchers to center justice and equity as an ethical and methodological imperative (Held, 2019). This paper explores what it takes to design and implement a systems change study that aims to utilize humanizing, values-based research practices and center the voices of professionals of color. This round table will explore the methodological decisions and moves of a research team and an evaluation team as a part of an NSF-funded project, Working Towards Racial Equity (WTRE), which aims to transform the field of environmental education (EE) by building the capacity of EE organizations to enact racially just systems change. We argue that centering the voices of EE professionals is critical to examining systems change work.
