Sarah R. Pritchard is an Intersectional Systems Scientist at the Prevention Research Center (PRC). She is on the leadership team of the PRC’s Equity Diversity and Inclusion Committee, where she uses community based system dynamics to support the Committee’s work to understand, operationalize, and intervene on the system of structural racism. She is also the Research Manager for the Implementation Science Center for Cancer Control and a Faculty Affiliate with the Social System Design Lab. She has been teaching Introduction to System Dynamics for Advancing Equity since its inception in 2019 and previously taught the Community Based System Dynamics course. She has facilitated community based system dynamics workshops domestically and abroad on equity topics such as violence prevention, solidarity work, conflict resolution, social service delivery, burnout, and food systems. Through her teaching, facilitation, and mentoring, Sarah has guided hundreds of people on applying system dynamics to problems of equity and liberation. Her approach to system dynamics is informed by the lineages of intersectional anti-violence organizing, lesbian feminists of color, transformative justice, feminist self-defense, somatics, and queer theory.
