Network Lead & Direction Group
For me, building diverse networks is key to the success of any framing intervention. As Network Lead, I focus on how we create communities that are able to work, and speak, together. Alongside this I keep an eye on who is in PIRC’s network, growing and diversifying who accesses our work. As part of the flat structure in the Direction Group, I have worked on governance and convened strategy discussions.
I am also a facilitator and qualitative researcher; I co-authored the Framing the Economy report and a communications handbook for equality bodies. I have a particular interest in how we communicate, and bring about, a new economy. Before joining PIRC in 2016, I was the Lead Organiser at Positive Money and Political Editor of Shoppinghour Magazine. I am an urbanite stuck in rural mid-Wales. Please send help.
