January 14th, I did the final presentation (linked below for the majorly nerdy and extraordinarily curious) on my year as a Walden Research & Applications for Social Change Fellow and Grant Recipient. I was honored to be accepted as a fellow (and to be able to receive the grant just in time to help offset the out-of-pocket costs I incurred collecting my data!).
During the presentation, it was fascinating to hear all the other presentations and think of all the potential for change. At the same time, it was a reminder that there is still a lot more work left to be done, to get the findings from my research out of the boring and dusty halls of academia and into the worlds as useful information.
While I am technically graduating soon, I will keep consulting so I can take a little time to finish my open projects and be present as a mother to my kids and deal with some post-divorce grief and life reorganization before working on getting a full time role.
