My name is Dr. Addy and I am founder and CEO of Ladders4Action.
The name of the company gives a nod to the fact that I am an action researcher.
I have a unique background which blends research and practice, I am happiest in the place where these two things meet. I believe that all knowledge should be derived from action, and action should be informed by knowledge. Think like a person of action, and act like a person that thinks.
I started as a disaster engineer and humanitarian aid worker and then moved on to youth work, before completing a PhD in social work. Recently I have been working in the UK teaching gender studies and exploring inclusion in the UK's National Health Service.
My whole life I have been trying to make the world a better place.
I have always tried, but I haven't always succeeded. I know that making change is hard, so I set up Ladders4Action to support change-makers.
