Crawford School’s Executive Education program has been announced as the winner of the Australian Psychological Society’s 2018 Workplace Excellence Awards for Performance and Capability Development.
The award recognises the suite of bespoke programs designed and led by Dr Robert Styles, Professor Quentin Grafton and Dr Exmond DeCruz, and the significant and sustained impact of the school’s applied research in water, fisheries, and energy security put into practice by alumni across Africa and Southwest Asia.
The Society’s judges acknowledged the truly multidisciplinary nature of this work with its academic underpinnings from behavioural psychology, public policy, applied economics, public administration, environmental management, organisational and cultural sociology, international law, evolutionary science and systems engineering.
Through these courses and programs, participants cultivated the ability to think strategically about changing future contexts and contribute professionally and influentially to establishing the cooperative and productive work culture necessary for effecting significant systemic transformation within the diverse sectors in which they are working.
“On behalf of the School, I want to thank the extensive range of teachers, experts and professional staff involved in the development and delivery of these significant and complex programs,” said Crawford School Director Professor Helen Sullivan.
“They are major collaborative efforts involving staff from within Crawford School but also with our colleagues in the ANU College of Law, School of Engineering, Energy Change Institute, Coral Bell School of Asia Pacific Affairs and the Climate Change Institute, as well as a range of private and public sector organisations and other Australian and overseas universities. Well done to everyone involved.”
