Work that I am developing 300 words

Along with colleague Lena Henry, we have been rolling out the Te Whaihanga training to increase the capacity of built environment professionals to engage with Maori and this does have a gender dimension. The materials are available: http://bit.ly/tewhaihanga. Further articles are in draft.

I am working with Mik Smellie community researcher to document semi-public spaces for use by city centre residents. The Google map can be accessed via INSTAGRAM: www.instagram.com/our.akl.map. The aim is to extend this work to provide information on gender friendly spaces and places.

I am a member of the Auckland place-making group which is gearing up for Place-Making Week this Oct 2019 in New Zealand.

I am a member of advisory the group for the project Dr. Caroline Shaw is leading on Gender and Cycling in New Zealand funded through the Lotteries Health Research (Grant number LHR-2017-69459). Articles are in draft.

I am hoping to be part of future research projects funded through the NZ government’s MBIE programme ‘Ageing Well’ to ensure a gender dimension is integrated.

I continue to seek funding to develop the Gender Assessment Tool for local government planners, co-authored with Eva Zombori, which was initially produced for CAP and tabled at WUF 10 in Naples. This is available through my Linked in page: https://www.linkedin.com/in/dory-reeves/
