TAKE A RISK AND DO SOMETHING GREAT

“I am someone who likes to pursue ideas, not just generate and voice them. This requires the courage to take risks, to ‘bite off more than we can chew’ and to be flexible to change. It demands energy and motivation, but the rewards are great. When we do this, we create. Research, evidence and imagination have the power to make change. The hard part is moving to action. How? Through trial and through practice, and with dedication, thoughtfulness and courage. Knowledge is the stuff of change. As someone who sees tremendous value in research, my commitment is to see the great knowledge we have on our shelves and in our communities put into practice.”
