Professional and community engagement

I am serving on the Public Education Advisory Committee, set up by the Minister for Education to promote the democratic and socially sustainable advantages of a robust public education system, from early childhood through to secondary schooling.

I am currently providing an academic perspective on two DECD projects in South Australia, one on children's outdoor play spaces, and the other around engaging more meaningfully with families.

I am a member of the Australian Sociological Association, Early Childhood Australia, the American Education Research Association, and Gender and Education.

I am an active member of the Flinders Ally network, which supports LGBT+ staff and students, and a member of the Athena SWAN self-assessment team, working on accreditation for this gender-equity initiative across the university sector.
