Professor Shelley Mallet is a member of the Life Course Centre’s Advisory Committee. She combines the role of Professorial Fellow of Social Policy at the University of Melbourne with the position of General Manager of the Research and Policy Centre at the Brotherhood of St Laurence. In this capacity, she directs the organisation’s research effort and helps lead policy development.

The Research and Policy Centre uses the principles of co-design in its research and policy development work. As the Life Course Centre moves towards its mid-point, can applying the principles of co-design strengthen our capacity to be the “Go To” Centre for research and policy on disadvantage over the life course?

Professor Mallet will be in conversation with Dr Cameron Parsell to discuss co-design, how it is used at the Brotherhood of St Laurence, and how university researchers can successfully co-design projects with not-for-profit organisations.
