Using knowledge and expertise in academic and wider communities


Sharing expertise and knowledge with communities & the public

Here is a selection of some things I've been involved in or contributed to beyond 'the ivory tower'

 of the university. 

Menstruation, 'period poverty' & social inclusion

In 2021, I contributed to EONZ's fantastic suite of educator resources, ‘Going with the flow’, about  menstruation and gender-inclusive practices. Below is one of the videos for which I was interviewed and a video of the launch, which has background info. You can access the materials (print resource, lesson plans and the video series) from the EONZ website
