Olive Stevenson Memorial Lecture: ‘Listen, Learn and Lead: The Ann Craft Trust Creating Safer Cultures
Professor Olive Stevenson was a Professor of Social Work at the University of Nottingham between 1986 – 1992, and a key figure in the history in the School of Sociology and Social Policy, as the the Head of School between 1984 – 1991. Olive was a pioneer of Social Work research, advocating for social justice and relational work with adults and children. The annual lectures acknowledge the impact Olive had on the Social Work profession and create a space to hear from people currently working in the field.
This year is a particularly special event, as our guest speaker will be Deborah Kitson, CEO of the Ann Craft Trust. Deborah knew and worked closely with Olive. Deborah’s lecture is titled: ‘Listen, Learn and Lead: The Ann Craft Trust Creating Safer Cultures’.
