Each year the Government Outcomes Lab appoints a small group of leading practitioners from across the public, private and voluntary sectors to support our mission  to advance research and practice in how governments tackle complex social needs.

The position of Fellow of Practice is pro-bono, and Fellows contribute to our work in many different ways, from providing input into our research and analytical work, speaking at our events, authoring and reviewing papers, and sharing learning to strengthen the global community of practitioners. In 2020 we will be joined by nine Fellows of Practice whose expertise spans a range of sectors and countries. What they all share is a deep commitment to public service and to improving social outcomes for those most vulnerable in society.  

We are truly honoured to be bringing together an outstanding group of practitioners from across the world. Through their deep knowledge, expertise and practical insights, the Fellows of Practice help ensure the work of the GO Lab remains firmly anchored and responsive to the needs of practitioners and government officials.
Dr Mara Airoldi, GO Lab Director
