Dear ASC-List,

Today's member guest spent her early career working for a range of
Canberra-based lobby groups. In 1989 she started working for the Crawford
Fund (https://www.crawfordfund.org/), a non-profit organisation that has
worked since then to raise awareness of food security issues and involve
Australians to train developing country agricultural scientists to help
improve food security. Cathy developed and manages the Crawford Fund’s
journalism award, Master Class in Communication with Stakeholders (for
scientists in developing countries, with Econnect Communication), and a
program to encourage young Australians in their study, careers and
volunteering for developing countries. Additionally, she has a (now very
part time) media consultancy concentrating in the not-for-profit sector.
Cathy sits on the board of the World Vegetable Center (http://avrdc.org/) which
conducts research, training and promotion on vegetables for improved health
and global poverty alleviation. Join us online to meet Cathy!
