In this post I outline things I think I want and need to know more about in order to do my work well and support the sector in my knowledge mobilization aspirations.
In today’s weeknote, I’m being a bit more reflective. Thinking out loud about my work and place in the sector. A bit of stream of consciousness I wrote early this morning. Slightly edited. Definitely not polished. I hope that’s OK.
