30 Years of Transformations

17th March at 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

What impact has GWL had on individuals, groups and communities in the past 30 years? Which “special ingredients” contribute to making GWL a transformative environment for the people who access it? What can be learnt from GWL’s approach to women’s empowerment, inclusion and wellbeing?

These are some of the questions a team of four academic researchers from the University of Strathclyde, Kathy Hamilton, Holly Porteous, Sarah Edwards and Juliette Wilson, have been seeking to answer as part of a 2 year project which culminates in March 2022.

30 Years of Transformations, Thursday 17th March, 6pm to 7.30pm, Online, Free

Having delved into our archive, conducted dozens of interviews, attended events, and gathered creative responses to these questions, the team are now ready to share their findings in an informal and non-academic setting. They will share some of their findings and discuss the wider impact of their research.

This event is aimed at anyone who is interested in or has been touched by our work, as we take time to celebrate 30 years of transforming lives and look ahead to the next decade.

The research project is funded by the Leverhulme Trust.
