Fulbright Scholar in Nonprofit Leadership, Fulbright Australia (2020)

“I am grateful for my 2020 Fulbright Scholarship and the opportunity it has enabled me to spend time at the Stanford Digital Civil Society Lab exploring the future of NGOs. COVID-19 has both accelerated digital disruption and reaffirmed the value of civil society which makes my Fulbright Australia – US knowledge exchange all the more relevant. Of course, being unable to travel to the US in 2020 has not dampened my enthusiasm – as I’ve continued connecting digitally with leaders in the US to explore these rapidly emerging trends. In 2021, I am looking forward to testing and validating collaborative solutions in person and bringing both innovations and friendships back to Australia.”
