Podcast: Ways of Working 30 November 2015

Dr Emily Keddell of Child Poverty Action Group, Reimagining Social Work and University of Otago Department of Sociology, Gender and Social Work was our guest for our 30 November 2015 broadcast.

We talked about her work with CPAG and RSW mentioning project management system Basecamp and discussion and decision making software Loomio.
