Leadership for Inclusive Development: Call for Abstracts NOW OPEN!

Topics Cross-sector partnerships

The 7th RDI Conference will take place on 12-13 June 2019 in Melbourne. A Call for Abstracts has just launched, inviting submissions responding to the conference theme: Leadership for Inclusive Development.

As co-hosts, RDI Network and La Trobe University are encouraging submissions which contribute to a dialogue on the potential of both individual and collective forms of leadership to advance an agenda which leaves no one behind. The call is open to original research, case studies, creative expressions and innovative proposals of how leadership can be applied to see inclusive social change.

Find out more and submit your abstract via the RDI Conference 2019 website.

The RDI Conference will bring together international development practitioners, researchers, policy makers and students from around Australia and beyond, representing a range of fields and disciplines. The conference program will create a unique space to explore and share new ideas and opportunities for working collaboratively and advancing effective leadership for development.

You can contribute to this unique dialogue by submitting an abstract in one of seven categories, including papers, workshops, policy hacks and more. For all the details including details of the submission process, download the full Call for Abstracts from the Conference website.

Successful submissions will have the opportunity to have papers included in a conference publication following the event.

The call for abstracts is open until 30 January 2019. Please share this opportunity with your networks.

The RDI Network is offering a limited number of scholarships for early career researchers and practitioners from the Asia-Pacific region to attend the Conference. To apply, individuals must be nominated and submit an abstract – individually or co-authored – using the application form here.
