Making your research a powerful tool for a better world

Making your research a powerful tool for a better world

Women are generating powerful research with the opportunity to change the world for the better. But so often, quality research fails to have the impact or influence on decision making that it should. In this upcoming WELA Experts Session, we want to explore specifically how to harness the power of women developing research to advance environmental and climate justice.

From connecting researchers with fellow change makers, getting noticed in the right networks, and engaging others early in your process – we’ll consider how collaborative leadership, co-design and relational practice can make sure you’re getting the biggest outcomes from your research project.

Our panelists include:

  • Amanda TattersallUniversity of Sydney’s Policy Lab Education Lead & Postdoctoral Fellow; host of the ChangeMakers podcast; co-founder of GetUp; founder Sydney Alliance
  • Kate MacKenzieStrategy and communications expert working at the intersection of climate, finance and economics; fellow at the Centre for Policy Development
  • Sangeetha Chandrashekeran, Deputy Director at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute

The conversation will be moderated by Asmaa Guedira, WELA Community Builder, and consultant in collaborative innovation and human-centered design. RSVP to join this discussion with influential researchers, campaigners and change makers to explore pathways to increase the influence of important research for environmental action.

Who should attend? Anyone using research to inform better outcomes for our environment and climate justice – academics, researchers, NGO staff, policy officers, activists and change makers. If you’re doing the research or commissioning it, join the discussion to share your experiences and learn from others about how we can be more impactful together.

The event is finished.
